Senator ALLISON (9:41 PM) —I indicate Democrat support for these amendments. It is another in a suite of amendments which would identify need as being based in real terms and not on parents' ability to pay fees. We think that this is very worth while, as I have said. I go into a lot of schools and I see evidence of great need for capital works. There seems to be no logic and no priority afforded schools in the way that funding is provided to them for capital grants. We are very pleased to support anything which establishes sensible priorities.

Question agreed to.
