Senator BELL —I give notice that, on the next day of sitting, I shall move:

  That the Senate—

  (a)notes, with alarm, that over 1 000 public schools are now being financed by a confectionery company, and that at least 334 of these schools are in Victoria; and

  (b)calls on the Minister for Employment, Education and Training (Mr Crean) to recognise that the provision of education is a proper role for government on behalf of the total community and to ensure that adequate funds are provided so that the collection of lolly papers will cease to be the source of needed funds for schools.
