Mr Cohen asked the Minister for Home Affairs, upon notice, on 2 April 1980:

(   1 ) What sum has been spent on coaching as part of the Sports Assistance Program in each of the last five years.

(2   ) How is this money dispersed.

Mr Ellicott - The answer to the honourable member's question is as follows:

(1)   The following amounts have been allocated by the Government for coaching in the last five years:

1975-76-$90,092; 1976-77-564,935; 1977-78- $134,600; 1978-79-$277,349; 1979-80-$364,500.

(2)   As Minister responsible for sport, I approve grants under the Sports Development Program on the basis of recommendations I receive from the Sports Advisory Council. Generally, grants are allocated only to National Sporting organisations. Coaching funds are allocated to selected national sporting associations for the employment of National Coaching Directors. In addition, funds are available to assist with the costs of visits of eminent coaches from overseas, the running of national coaching courses and seminars, the printing of publications and for other national coaching projects.
