Economy—mining boom (Question No 786)

Mr Coe asked the Treasurer, upon notice, on 11 August 2016:

(1) Did Budget Paper 3, p 40 state that the ACT will also be affected by the flow-on effects of the challenges facing the Australian economy, such as the downturn in commodity prices; if so, to what extent, in dollar terms, has the ACT economy benefitted from the mining boom, for instance, what has been the increase in Goods and Services Tax revenues and Commonwealth Grants as a result of the mining boom.

(2) What has been the total fiscal and economic benefits of the mining boom to the ACT.

(3) Was the end of the mining boom foreseeable.

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

(1)

Yes. Budget Paper 3, p40 states:

"...the ACT will also be affected by the flow-on effects of the challenges facing the Australian economy, such as the downturn in commodity prices."

This question appears to be a hypothetical modelling question which would require significant resources to complete. As per the Companion to the Standing Orders, Chapter 12, paragraph 12.28:

"12.28 Occasionally Ministers will reply to a question on notice or part of a question on notice by indicating that they are not prepared to allow the use of the resources required to obtain the information requested. This usually occurs when a question requests very detailed statistical information. The standing orders place no obligation on a Minister to answer a question1."
