Mr Stewart asked the Minister for Environment, Housing and Community Development upon notice:

(   1 ) Has the Australian Sports Council been re-established.

(2)   If so, what are the names and backgrounds of the persons appointed.

(3)   What are the duties and responsibilities of the new Council.

Mr Newman - The answer to the honourable member's question is as follows: (1), (2) and (3) The Australian Sports Council has not been re-established, nor has it been disbanded. While membership of the first Sports Council expired on 30 September 1975 it was never formally dismissed and hence new appointments have not been made.

As part of the Commonwealth Government's review into health, welfare and community development programs, including sport, I reconvened members of the former Sports Council Tor a meeting in Melbourne on 16 August 1976. The Council provided me with advice on the future role for the Commonwealth Government in sports development.
