Senator ELLISON (Special Minister of State) (5:11 PM) —There is some limit to the funding in relation to table B, and I think that deals with the ques tion of research. Table B is dealt with under section 16 of the Higher Education Funding Act. Section 15 outlines the fact that table A opens up the ability for funding to be for other purposes, so that is the significance of the change. It was thought appropriate in the circumstances to provide that to Notre Dame University.

That was something which enjoyed the support of Mr Beazley, the member for Brand and Leader of the Opposition. Dr Kemp, or the government, received a letter from Mr Beazley on that very point. I cannot comment on the situation in relation to the other colleges. I am not aware whether they are under consideration or otherwise.
