Mr Melham asked the Prime Minister, in writing, on 14 May 2008:

What was the total cost to the Government for the meetings and events of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) forum in 2007, and what was the breakdown of costs incurred by individual departments and agencies.


Mr Rudd (Prime Minister) —I am advised that the answer to the honourable member’s question is as follows:

As at 30 June 2008 the expenses incurred by the Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet associated with APEC totalled $153.2 million.

The Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet does not keep records of costs incurred by other departments and agencies.
