Senator Withers asked the Minister representing the Minister for Services and Property, upon notice:

(   1) Which person appointed since December 1972 from outside the Australian Public Service to Boards, Commissions and Statutory Authorities under the Minister's responsibility arc members of the Australian Labor Party or who, prior to the 1972 election, publicly advocated the return of a Labor Government.

(2)   What salary and allowances are paid to each such appointee.

(3)   What, if any, additional staff and facilities have been provided for each such appointee.

(4)   What was the cost of such staff and facilities in the years ending (a) 30 June 1973 and (b) 30 June 1974.

(5)   What is the estimated cost of such staff and facilities for the year ending 30 June 1975.

The Minister for Services and Property has provided the following answers to the honourable senator's question:

(   I ) to (5) I refer the honourable senator to the Prime Minister's statement on 23 August 1974 (House of Representatives Hansard p. 1213) where he referred to the fact that the government does not know in each case what occupations were followed by Australian Labor Party candidates after the 1972 elections. This position also applies in respect of people who advocated the return of the Labor Government before that election.
