Mr NEWMAN (Bass) (Minister for Environ ment, Housing and Community Development) I table the first report of the Tasmanian State Grants Commission. In accordance with the new federalism proposals, the Grants Commission was established by statute of the Tasmanian Government to distribute funds to individual local government authorities. This report details the rationale behind the distribution -

Mr DEPUTY SPEAKER (Mr Lucock)Order!Strictly it might be said that the Minister is making a statement. Is leave granted to enable the Minister to do so?


Mr Morris - How long is the statement?


Mr NEWMAN - It will take about 30 seconds.

 


Mr Morris - Leave is granted.


Mr NEWMAN -At the risk of being a bore I had better start again. In accordance with the new federalism proposals, the Grants Commission was established by statute of the Tasmanian Government to distribute funds to individual local government authorities. This report details the rationale behind the distribution and the amounts of Commonwealth funds to be received by individual authorities in 1976-77.

Motion (by Mr MacKellar) proposed:

That the House take note of the paper.

Debate (on motion by Mr Morris) adjourned.
