Answers to questions

National Multicultural Festival—costs (Question No 733)

Mrs Jones asked the Minister for Multicultural and Youth Affairs, upon notice, on 2 May 2016:

Further to the answer to Question No. 710 which advised that $60,100 was budgeted for media and promotion for the National Multicultural Festival, how much was spent on media and promotion for the National Multicultural Festival in

(a) 2015,

(b) 2014,

(c) 2013 and

(d) 2012.

Ms Berry: The answer to the member's question is as follows:

Question No. 710 referred to the budgeted amount, not the actual expenditure. To answer this question more specifically would require an unreasonable diversion of staff resources and involve retrieving archived documentation for the years requested.

Generally, expenditures for the promotion and media for the Festival have fluctuated between $30,000 and $60,000 each year.
