(Question No. 5065)

Mr Coleman asked the Minister for Foreign Affairs, upon notice, on 18 February 1987:

Is he able to give an estimate of the total financial cost of the Program of Cultural Cooperation between Australia and the USSR for the years 1987 and 1988.

Mr Hayden —The answer to the honourable member's question is as follows:

The cost to the ``Australia Abroad'' cultural relations budget of my Department for the two year period 1987 and 1988 is estimated at $160,000. A range of government and private organisations and individuals also participate in cultural exchange and activities but it is not possible accurately to estimate the cost of that participation.
