Commonwealth payments

(Question No 183)

Mr Humphries asked the Treasurer, upon notice, on 4 June 2002:

(1) What is the quantum of other Commonwealth payments received in the ACT for the current financial year as at 31 March 2002?

(2) Is the quantum of other Commonwealth payments received as at 31 March 2002 greater or less than the estimates prepared for the 2001 ACT Budget?

(3) What has been the trend in the payment of other Commonwealth payments during the period between 1 October 2001 and 31 March 2002?

(4) How has this pattern of other Commonwealth payments varied from the same period in the previous financial year?

(5) What has been the basis for any changes in the pattern of payments of other Commonwealth payments between this and the previous financial year?

Mr Quinlan: The answer to the member's question is as follows:

Please note: answers are written in respect of Consolidated Financial Statements for the General Government Sector.

(1) The total amount of other Commonwealth payments received in the ACT, as at 31 March 2002, was $22.8m.

(2) The 2001 ACT Budget forecasted other Commonwealth payments totalling $22.4m to be received during the 2001-02 financial year. As at 31 March 2002, the amount received is $0.4m greater than the amount estimated in the 2001-02 Budget. This is due to additional funding for the extension of the First Home Owners Scheme. An equivalent expense is also reflected.

(3) A comparison of the other Commonwealth payments receipts for the 2000-01 and 2001-02 financial years between October and March indicates that receipts from November 2001 to January 2002 are slightly down on the receipt trends for the same period in 2000-01. This is due largely to timing of receipts from the Commonwealth.
