Mr Braithwaite asked the Minister for Environment, Housing and Community Development upon notice, on 13 October 1977:

(   1 ) What was the amount of expenditure through his De- partment on capital works within the Electoral Divisions of Leichhardt Herbert, Kennedy and Dawson during each of the years 1973-74 to 1976-77, inclusive.

(2)   What was the total expenditure by his Department during the same years.

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

(   1) The Department of Environment, Housing and Community Development undertakes no direct capital works expenditure in the States.

Most of the Department's expenditure is in the form of payments to the States for specific purposes, the bulk of it being for welfare housing.

Under some programs, payments are made to assist specific capital projects. In these cases, it is possible to attribute expenditures to particular areas, such as electorates. The available details are as follows:


(b)   Expenditure.

(2)   Total expenditure was $332.0m, $7 15.8m, $700.2m and $562.6m respectively.
