(Question No. 240)


Senator Vigor asked the Minister representing the Minister for Territories, upon notice, on 22 April 1985:

For each 6-monthly period since January 1982:

(a) how many officers of the Department of Territories, or its predecessors, have undertaken official visits to (i) Cocos Island, (ii) Norfolk Island, or (iii) Christmas Island, and what was the purpose of each such visit, which officers travelled and what was the expense borne by the Department;

(b) how many trips to each of these islands were undertaken by the responsible Minister and, on each occasion, how many members of Ministerial staff also travelled, and what was the total cost to the Department of the stay on the island by all concerned; and

(c) has any other person had fares, travel expenses or both paid by the Department of Territories, or its predecessors, in relation to any visit to any of the islands; if so, what was the cost of each visit, in what capacity did the person or persons travel and what was the purpose of the visit.


Senator Gietzelt —The following response has been provided to the honourable senator's questions:

The Department of Territories has examined movement requisitions, reports by administrators, and files on ministerial visits to isolate the information which Senator Vigor seeks. The results of these examinations are attached.

It should be noted that information prior to 11 March 1983, when responsibility for the Territories was transferred to the Department of Territories and Local Government, is not included. The Department of Home Affairs and Environment has advised it would have difficulty in providing such information. Finance directions do not require movement requisitions to be held for longer than two years.

The Department does not maintain an analysis of travel by destinations. Preparation of the answer has involved time-consuming searching and cross-checking of information held in various areas of the Department. In terms of very scarce staff resources, it has cost some eight person-weeks or approximately $9,000-resources which now cannot be applied in other areas of need in the Department.
