the Australian Flag Co at 218 Gladstone Street, Fyshwick, Mastersreen Print, Cnr Sandford Street and Kembla Court, Mitchell.

(4) The ACT Government is not involved in selling or promoting material sold at tourist stores. However, Australian Capital Tourism (ACTC) promotes the ACT flag to a small extent by including a postcard bearing the ACT flag in visitor information packs distributed to schools Australia wide. The Canberra Region Visitors Centre (CRVC) does not sell material bearing the ACT flag. The only tourist material sold in the CRVC are maps and books of Canberra and the region.

(5) ACTC is responsible for marketing the ACT and region as a desirable tourist destination through the establishment of a strong brand position and seasonal marketing campaigns to increase awareness and draw visitors to the region. Selling tourism memorabilia does not fall within its charter.

Youth centre projects

(Question No 1144)

Mr Pratt asked the Minister for Disability, Housing and Community Services, upon notice:

According to the Capital Works Progress Report for 2002-03 a total of $53 000 was allocated in the 2002-03 Budget for three different Youth Centre projects as shown on the June quarter report for the Department of Disability, Housing and Community Services. Upon looking at the Department of Education, Youth and Family Services (DEYFS), quarterly report the same projects appear but with different monetary values:

(1) Are these the same projects, which have been doubled up in the report;

(2) If so why are there different figures for similar projects in DEYFS. If not:

(a) why have these projects been delayed;

(b) are they still on the agenda, if not, why not;

(c) if so to (b) when will they be completed.

Mr Wood

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

(1) The three youth centre projects in the Department of Disability, Housing and Community Services' report are not the same as the projects in the Department of Education, Youth and Family Services report. Although they have the same project names, they refer to projects on different properties owned and managed by each Department.

(2) The projects were undertaken during 2002-03 as planned and completed by June 2003. Funding for these projects related to youth centres that were part of larger community centres (such as at Belconnen, Gungahlin, Lanyon and Weston Creek). Works on these youth centres were also part of works undertaken on the community centres. Accordingly, all costs were consolidated under the community centre projects in the Capital Works Progress Report.
