Mr FISHER —I give notice that, on the next day of sitting, I shall move:

That this House-

(1) notes that the closure of students hostels in Victoria will seriously disadvantage 400 country students satisfactory accommodation and disadvantage them in obtaining tertiary education, and

(2) calls on the Commonwealth and Victorian Governments to-

(a) take immediate steps to ensure that country students are not discriminated against in access to tertiary education, and

(b) implements the recommendations of the Commonwealth Schools Commission Report on facilities for isolated children that would permit students hostels to receive capital and special purpose funds for projects which assist in the provision of living away from home facilities and services for isolated children .
