(10) What conditions are placed on applicants for this insurance.
(11) How much money does the Government spend administering insurance subsidies.
Ms Burch: The answer to the member's question is as follows:
After careful consideration of the question, and advice provided by my Directorate, I have determined that the information sought is not in an easily retrievable form across Government, 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.
