Mr O'KEEFE (PATERSON, NEW SOUTH WALES) -I ask the Minister for Urban and Regional Development a question. Is it true that some local government councils have already made approaches to the local government grants commission and received financial assistance? If not, have some local government councils been promised financial assistance for certain projects? Can the Minister inform the House of the exact position at present in respect of this local government assistance measure?

Mr UREN (REID, NEW SOUTH WALES) (Minister for Urban and Regional Development) - Yesterday I made a statement to the effect that the regions for applications by local governments for assistance under the Grants Commission would not be ready for at least 3 months. Of course, there will be provisions directly relating to this in the Budget, but they will be revealed by the Treasurer tonight.
