Senator MACKLIN(10.02) —I remind the Minister that in the Hansard of 8 October 1985 she is reported as saying:

That scheme was inequitable and discriminatory.

She was referring to the colleges scheme. To continue:

We have changed it; we have redistributed the funds available under that scheme on a phased basis. Senator Teague will be interested to know that $10m has been allocated over the triennium for emergency loans schemes, which will operate on every higher education campus in Australia, which will operate under guidelines which require student participation...

The amount of money mentioned there is identical in adjusted terms. The Minister talked about a phasing out operation. Can she tell me what amount of money is going to the colleges on a phased out basis in the 1986 Budget?
