(Question No 672)
Mr Stefaniakasked the Treasurer, upon notice:
In relation to women's sport funding:
How much funding has been directed to women's sport as at 30 April 2003 under the introduction of the Gaming Machine (Women's Sports) Amendment Bill 2002;
Have the Ministerial Guidelines been prepared to assist clubs to determine whether their donations are eligible community contributions, if so, can a copy please be provided in response to this question, if not, why not;
Has the introduction of this legislation negatively impacted on any other community groups who received community contributions from gaming machine revenue, if so, who are the groups and how much money have they missed out on.
Mr Quinlan: The answer to the member's question is as follows:
Gaming machine licensees are required under section 60D of the Gaming Machine Act 1987 (the Act) to report to the Gambling and Racing Commission on the level of their contributions for a particular financial year within 1 month of the end of that year. Thus in relation to the current financial year, licensees are required to report by 31 July 2003.
Licensees are not required to provide progress reports on the level of community contributions during a financial year. Therefore the Commission does not receive such information and I am unable to provide a progress amount or an estimate of licensees' contributions to women's sport as at 30 April 2003.
