(Question No. 504)


Senator Peter Rae asked the Minister representing the Minister for Arts, Heritage and Environment, upon notice, on 10 September 1985:

(1) What was the total administrative budget of the Australia Council in the year 1975.

(2) What is the administrative budget for the latest available year.

(3) What proportion of the administrative budget was devoted to the administration of the individual boards of the Australia Council, and what proportion to the general administration of the Council, for the years in (1) and (2).

(4) What were the titles and salaries of the administrative officers of the Australia Council in 1975 and in the latest available year distinguishing between officers serving the boards directly and general administrative officers and excluding office secretaries and clerks.


Senator Ryan —The Minister for Arts, Heritage and Environment has provided the following answer to the honourable senator's question:

(1) The total Administration Budget of the Australia Council for the financial year 1975-76 was $3,538,000.

(2) The total Administration Budget expended for the financial year 1984-85 was $7,046,000.

(3) For 1975-76, the Administration Budget was not divided according to amounts spent on administration of the individual boards and general administration. However, a broadly estimated breakdown of the expenditure for that year suggests that approximately 56% was spent on the individual boards and related areas and 44% on the general administration of the Council. For 1984-85, 63% of the Administration Budget was spent on the administration of the individual boards and related areas and 37% on the general administration of the Council.

(4) The titles and salaries of administrative officers of the Australia Council for the years 1975-76 and 1984-85, excluding clerical support, keyboard and part-time staff, are set out below. These represent the establishment of the Council-a number of the positions shown were unoccupied from time to time.
