Questions on Notice
Climate Change and Energy Efficiency (Question No. 2421)
Since 1 July 2010, have any electorate-by-electorate dissections for actual or potential Government programs, initiatives or decisions been prepared by departments, agencies or authorities within the Minister's portfolio; if so, for each dissection:
(a) what has been its purpose;
(b) what resources have been used;
(c) who requested it;
(d) to whom has it been circulated; and
(e) can a copy be provided.
To support the Prime Minister attending events and functions across Australia, the Department routinely provides electorate data for the National Solar Schools Program and the Solar Hot Water Rebate.
Consistent with longstanding practice, departments provide a range of advice to relevant ministers. Consideration of these briefs is a matter for the Australian Government.
