Sport teams funding

(Question No 706)

Mr Cornwell

asked the Minister for Sport, Racing and Gaming, upon notice, on 17 June 2003:

In the (a) 2002-03 and (b) 2003-04 Budgets, how much money was paid to ACT professional sporting teams by name.

Mr Quinlan

: The answer to the member's questions are as follows:

In relation to your question, it is assumed that you are referring to National League Teams that represent the ACT when you state "ACT professional sporting teams". The question has been answered on this understanding.

The following table shows monies paid to National League teams in 2002-03 and the proposed budget for 2003-04. No financial contribution for 2003-04 has yet been confirmed, with scope that some teams may have their amount altered from previous levels or new teams included in the program should they meet the guidelines. Negotiations are continuing to finalise the commitment of the final $40,000.
