Reader riposte: Footing the RAMSI bill

18 August 2010 09:41

On Wednesday, reader Paul Cotton asked Interpreter readers for help. He wanted to know which Australian agencies are paying for Australia's portion of the Regional Assistance Mission in the Solomon Islands (RAMSI), and whether Australia was also paying for the contributions made by others, such as Tonga and PNG.

Reader Ravi Tomar, a senior researcher at the Parliamentary Library in Canberra, can help with the first part. He refers Paul to this Question on Notice, containing the following (slightly dated) table showing how much various agencies are paying for the Australian RAMSI mission.
