A question to the Minister representing the Minister for Resources, Minister for Energy and Utilities, Minister for Arts:

What has been the total amount awarded in each of the past eight financial years in the:

    1. Aboriginal Regional Arts Fund?
    2. Aboriginal Artist Support (Quick Response) program?
    3. Creative Koori Arts and Cultural Projects program?
    4. Creative Koori Employment program? 

Have you ever as Minister for Arts redirected funding in any of the above programs against the recommendations in the peer assessment process or as recommended by the Department? When?
