Mr Snedden asked the Treasurer, upon notice:

Can the Commonwealth Statistician give figures of expenditure by State governments on pre-school education in 1972-73.

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

The Commonwealth Statistician has provided details of expenditure by State Governments from their own resources on pre-school education during 1972-73 in Table 1. Figures for 1971-72 incorporating minor revisions to figures previously supplied (Hansard, 31 May 1973, page 3069) are also given in the table.

In addition to the amounts spent by State Governments from their own resources on pre-school education, State Governments spend grants made available by the Australian Government under the States Grants (Preschool Teachers Colleges) Act 1968. Details of these amounts for the same years are set-out in Table 2.

The right honourable member's attention is drawn to the comments about differences between States which accompanied similar figures given in the answer to Mr Whitlam on this subject by the then Treasurer (Hansard, 12 June 1970, page 3682).
