Belconnen arts centre

(Question No 733)

Mr Stefaniak asked the Minister for Arts, Heritage and Indigenous Affairs, upon notice, on 15 November 2005:

(1) Given that in the response to question on notice No 526 the Minister stated that $43 048 was spent as at the end of 2004-05 on the Belconnen Arts Centre project, (a) why does the 2004-05 June quarter capital works progress report show that the end of year expenditure was $3 000 and (b) what is the correct figure;

(2) Will the $500 000 allocated in the 2005-06 Budget cover construction of the new centre or will additional funds have to be allocated in the 2006-07 financial year for construction;

(3) What work is still to be undertaken before all approvals can be given for the centre to be constructed;

(4) What is the estimated total expenditure on this project.

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

(1) a) The 2005-05 June quarter capital works progress report does not show the end of year expenditure on this project as $3,000, rather it shows the figure as $39,000.

b) The earlier figure provided, $43,048, includes GST.

(2) As stated in the 2005-06 Budget Papers (see Budget Paper 3 page 214), the $500,000 is for forward design. Additional funds will be required to complete construction of the Centre.

(3) Completion of design for the Centre, allocation of funding for construction and lodgement of a development application will be required before approvals can be given for the centre to be constructed.

(4) Estimated total expenditure will be finalised during the design process.
