Mr Morris asked the Minister for Transport, upon notice, on 21 May 1980:

(1)   Was a report concerning approved road funding programs for the financial years 1974-75 to 1979-80 recently made available to the Launceston City Council, Tasmania, by the Minister for Productivity; if so, was the report prepared by the Department of Transport.

(2)   If the report was prepared by his Department (a) what was the cost of preparation of the report, (b) how many persons were engaged in its preparation, (c) what were the names and designations of each of these persons and (d) how long did preparation of the report take.

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

(1)   My office recently provided information prepared in my Department to the Minister for Productivity regarding approved road programs for Tasmania for 1974-75 to 1979-80, and he may subsequently have made the information available to the Launceston City Council. This information was extracted from details included in annual road programs submitted by Tasmanian Ministers for Main Roads and Transport. The information provided to the Minister for Productivity is similar to that which my office readily makes available on request to all honourable members and senators.

(2)   Given the ongoing nature of preparation of this class of material, including data prepared for the information of honourable members and senators, no disaggregation of time and costs involved in any particular task is practicable without significantly increased costs.
