Hospitals-psychiatric services

(Question No 617)

Mr Smyth asked the Minister for Health, upon notice, on 21 September 2005:

What was the total budget overrun for the project listed as "Extension of Psychiatric Secure Unit"valued at $1 million in the 2004-05 Capital Works budget, given that there is a discrepancy in the figures you provided in response to question on notice No 509 where you stated an $80 000 budget overrun and in response to question on notice No 471 where you indicate the budget overrun is $248 554.

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

Funding for the extension of the Psychiatric Secure Unit was provided in two parts. In 2003-04 an amount of $0.350m was approved and further funding of $1.0m was approved for 2004-05. The total project budget to undertake the works therefore was $1.350m.

The year to date expenditure figure of $1.248m provided in response to your Question (No. 471) on 17 August 2005 related to the combined Project funding of $1.350m.

Final expenditure on the extension of the Psychiatric Secure Unit is expected to be $1.430m. This represents a budget overrun of $0.080m.
