(Question No. 1105)


Mr Taylor asked the Minister for Defence Science and Personnel, upon notice, on 10 October 1991:

  (1) What is the total anticipated expenditure in 1991-92 in each State and Territory for the Ready Reserve recruiting drive initiated in October 1991.

  (2) Are the figures referred to in part (1) expected to vary in (a) 1992-93 and (b) 1993-94.


Mr Bilney —The answer to the honourable member's question is as follows:

  (1) The value of advertising placed with the press and television is as follows:

  QLD  —  $278,740

  NSW (incl. ACT)  —  $576,802

  VIC  —  $419,233

  SA  —  $114,410

  WA  —  $85,801

  TAS  —  $42,337

  NT  —  $16,163

    TOTAL  —  $1,533,486

  In addition brochures, display kits, counselling films and posters have been produced for national distribution at a cost of $467,000. Further expenditure in 1991/92 is dependent on recruiting numbers cleared as "suitable for entry".

  (2) Plans for recruiting for the Ready Reserve in 1992-93 and 1993-94 have not been completed but some reductions in advertising may be possible as initial set-up costs will not recur.
