Senator RYAN (Minister for Education and Youth Affairs)(10.16) —Senator Macklin will be aware that the amalgamations were carried out under the previous Government. They were carried out as a cost cutting measure as part of what we call the razor gang exercise. So no special funding was provided under the previous Government to cope with some of the difficulties caused by the amalgamations. Since we have been in Government there have been no further amalgamations but neither has there been any special funding, so those institutions are funded in the same way as any other institution.

Question put:

That the amendments (Senator Peter Baume's) be agreed to.
