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

1. The 2002 Australian Bureau of Statistics publication "Participation in sport and physical activity"was released on 8 December 2003. The survey measured participation of those aged 18 years or over in organised sport, non-organised sport and selected physical activities. The publication contains very limited data at individual State/Territory level.

2. 175,900 ACT residents were recorded as participating in sport and physical activities. The publication does not differentiate between organised sport, non-organised sport and other physical activities at State/Territory level.

3. See answer to Question 2.
