Mr Morris asked the Minister for Transport, upon notice, on 22 May 1980:

What was total Government expenditure at each of Australia's (a) international and (b) domestic airports in (i) each year from 1975-76 to 1978-79 and (ii) the period 1 July 1 979 to the date of preparation of the answer to this question.


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

(a)   (i) Total Government expenditure incurred by the Departments of Transport, Housing and Construction and Administrative Services on maintenance, operation and new works at each of Australia's international airports in each year from 1975-76 to 1978-79 is as follows:

These figures include expenditure on the domestic element at each airport as costs cannot be segregated.

(b)   (i) Total Government expenditure incurred by the Departments of Transport, Housing and Construction and Administrative Services on maintenance, operation and new works at each of Australia's domestic airports in each year from 1975-76 to 1978-79 is as follows: (for the purposes of this table, domestic airports are defined as those serviced by the two major trunk operators AAA and TAA or, in the case of Port Hedland, MMA and TAA).

(a)   and (b) (ii). Figures are supplied on an annual basis. Lumpiness of some expenditures can cause progressive expenditure to be misleading. Information for 1979-80 will be available later this year.
