I am not prepared to authorise the use of the considerable resources that would be involved in providing the detailed information required to answer the Member's question.

Public service—advertising

(Question No 1876)

Mrs Burke asked the Minister for Housing, upon notice, on 14 February 2008:

(1) What promotional activities, publications and advertising in any media have been undertaken by (a) the department, (b) the Minister's Office or (c) any other office or agency on behalf of the Department or Minister's office in the 2007-08 financial year to date;

(2) What was the total amount spent on such activities as outlined in part (1) and was it costed to (a) the department/agency, (b) the Minister's office, (c) another Minister's office or (d) another agency/department;

(3) Can the Minister detail the promotional activities, publications and advertising undertaken by (a) the department/agency, (b) the Minister's Office, (c) another Minister's office or (d) another agency/department on behalf of the Minister or the department/agency;

(4) What were the promotional activities, publications and advertising meant to achieve, did they achieve their purposes and how was that measured;

(5) How much has been allocated both within the Minister's office and the department/agency for these activities in the 2007-08 financial year to date.

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

1. After careful consideration of the questions, and advice provided by my Department, I have determined that the information sought is not in an easily retrievable form, and that to collect and assemble the information sought solely for the purpose of answering the question would be a major task, requiring a considerable diversion of resources. In this instance, I do not believe that it would be appropriate to divert resources from the provision of direct services to clients, for the purposes of answering the Member's question.

Housing ACT—properties

(Question No 1878)

Mrs Burke asked the Minister for Housing, upon notice, on 14 February 2008:

(1) Can the Minister explain exactly what re-alignment of public housing stock occurred in 2006-07 in accordance with the Public Housing Management Asset Management Strategy 2003-2008;

(2) Can the Minister provide details on how many public housing properties were sold in (a) 2005-06, (b) 2006-07 and (c) 2007-08 to date, including details as to what type of dwellings and in which suburbs;
