Mr Lloyd asked the Minister for Transport, upon notice:

(   1 ) What voluntary organisations have requested financial assistance from his Department for the establishment or maintenance of a federal headquarters.

(2   ) What has been the response to the requests.

Mr Charles Jones - The answer to the honourable member's question is as follows:

(   1 ) Royal Federation of Aero Clubs of Australia $22,000 per annum. The General Aviation Association $8,000 per annum. The Gliding Federation of Australia $19,000 per annum (including payment in recognition of a number of responsibilities delegated to the Federation).

(2)   The Australian Government has provided financial assistance to the flying training movement in Australia since 1 926. The Assistance Scheme was last reviewed in 1 973 and as a result of this review it was decided to continue providing assistance to gliding and flying training by payment towards their secretariat expenses- the majority of which goes towards the maintenance of federal headquarters.
