Mr BURCHELL (for Mr. Kerby) asked the Minister representing the Minister for Repatriation, upon notice -

1.   Whether it is a fact that great dissatisfaction exists among returned soldiers over the vocational training arrangements with the Working Men's College of Victoria?

2.   Is it a fact that of 2S6 men selected to attend the .accountancy classes at the Melbourne Technical School (the Working Men's College) only thirteen attended; if so, what was the reason?

3.   Is it a fact that the teachers in accountancy for the Melbourne Technical School course are not registered or are not qualified?

4.   Is it a fact that the Melbourne Technical School uses for its correspondence courses the text books of the International Correspondence Schools, and charges more for two-thirds of the I.C.S. course than the I.C.S. does for the whole course?

5.   Is it a fact that higher fees are charged by the Melbourne Technical School for vocational trainees than are charged for ordinary students?
