(1) & (2) The information requested by the Honourable member is provided in the 2014/15 annual report which will be tabled in Parliament before the end of September 2015.
The annual report will assist the Honourable member to get a full picture of departmental performance and expenditure.

Accordingly, the Honourable member is advised to access all relevant information from these reports and report back to her constituency on what the government is doing.
