Dear Department of Infrastructure and Regional Development,

In June 2010, the Australian Parliament increased the allocation of excise for avtur and avgas to CASA by increasing the excise level. This was following your Department's representation to Minister Albanese.

Estimates at the time indicated in a four period, $89.9m would be allocated to CASA until June 2014.

Since 2014, the levy has remained.

I require the evidence and final use of those funds as directed by your Department in terms of :

1. Where expended;
2. Comparison with the source and the application of those funds in the following way:

July 2010 to June 2011
July 2011 to June 2012
July 2012 to June 2013
July 2013 to June 2014

and then:

July 2014 to June 2015
Junly 2015 to June 2016

Yours faithfully,

Rob Cumming
