1994-95 TRAVEL EXPENDITURE

M inister for A dm inistrative Services, D avid l ull, today released details, for the period o f 1 July 1994 to 30 June 1995, of:

• use o f official car transport and charter aircraft by form er G overnm ent M inisters, Parliam entary Secretaries, O pposition Office Holders, Leaders o f M inority Parties and Presiding O fficers

• travelling allow ance expenses for form er Governm ent M inisters, Parliam entary Secretaries, O pposition Office H olders and their staff

• overseas visits by M inisters o f the form er G overnm ent and O pposition O ffice H olders

In 1994-95 dom estic travel expenditure for form er M inisters, Parliam entary Secretaries and their staff increased by $ 1.1m to $5.9m or 22% on 1993-94 levels, w ith expenditure by Parliam entary Secretaries and their staff increasing by $247,000 or 52%. Expenditure on

overseas travel by form er M inisters increased by $378,000 to $4.1m - a 10% rise. D om estic travel costs for O pposition Office H olders and their staff rose by $90,000 or 14%.

M r Jull is exam ining a num ber o f m easures aimed at constraining Parliam entary travel costs in the context o f the forthcom ing Budget. This is in addition to the C oalition G overnm ent’s reduction o f the size o f the M inistry and significant cut to m inisterial staff num bers.

A nnual travel costs have traditionally been released in July or A ugust im m ediately follow ing the financial year in w hich they were incurred. The former G overnm ent did not release these 1994-95 figures prior to losing office, nor apparently extend to form er M inisters and Office H olders the custom ary courtesy o f double-checking them. Travel expenditure figures for the period 1 July 1995 to 1 M arch 1996 are being tabulated and will be released in due course.
