PREMIERS CONFERENCE, AUSTRALIAN LOAN COUNCIL AND MEETING OF THE COUNCIL OF AUSTRALIAN GOVERNMENTS

Ministerial Statement and Paper

MRS CARNELL (Chief Minister): I ask for leave of the Assembly to make a ministerial statement on the Premiers Conference, the Australian Loan Council and the meeting of the Council of Australian Governments, held on 11 April 1995.

Leave granted.

MRS CARNELL: As you know, the meetings were combined for the first time. In this statement I will report on each in turn. I will begin with the Premiers Conference. In the lead-up to the Premiers Conference I met with the Prime Minister to argue the ACT's case for additional assistance in 1995-96. The Prime Minister was very receptive, and after discussion about Acton and Kingston foreshore the offer document identified $15m of special revenue assistance for the ACT. This is more than was offered to any other State or Territory. In fact, only the Northern Territory and the ACT received anything at all. Although it is not as much as the Territory sought, it will go some way towards offsetting what would otherwise have been an untenable reduction in financial assistance.
