LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY QUESTION
QUESTION NUMBER 265
Education - Budget Supplementation
MS McRAE - asked the Minister for Education and Training on notice on 25 June 1996:
What budget supplementation was given to the capital works funding for education in each year between 1989 to 1995 in (a) the government sector; and (b) the non government sector.
MR STEFANIAK - the answer to Ms McRae's question is:
The capital works budget is not subject to supplementation as the term is normally used. Where additional funds for projects are required these are taken from any savings in other projects and/or the contingency reserve. It should be noted that additional funds of $3.19 million (to that shown in Table l) were appropriated by Government for the 1992/93 Accelerated Capital Works Program.
The information in Table 1 does not include the non government sector. The ACT Government does not provide funding for capital works for the non government sector. Capital funding is provided by the Commonwealth and is administered by state Block Grant Authorities.
