The Hon. JAN BARHAM: My question without notice is addressed to the Minister for Police and Emergency Services, representing the Minister for the Arts. Will the Minister confirm the current levels of funding for public libraries for the past two years under the designated categories used by National and State Libraries Australasia—namely, the overall expenditure, the per capita expenditure and the per capita subsidy?
The Hon. Duncan Gay: That question should be put on notice.
The Hon. MICHAEL GALLACHER: It is appropriate for that question to be put on notice. However, I will assist the member with her question by referring it to the appropriate Minister and seeking a response.
