Mr MAKIN (Hindmarsh) .- I confess that I entertain a similar feeling of apprehension on this matter to that which has been voiced by the honorable member for Capricornia (Mr. Higgs). I fear that the Minister will be guided by the Director of the Institute, and that, unless there be some way of restraining the representations of the Director, we are likely to incur a large expenditure in the making of grants.

Mr GREENE (RICHMOND, NEW SOUTH WALES) (Minister for Trade and Customs) - If the Director wishes to establish any of these scholarships, he can only do so by obtaining Ministerial approval. The Minister will then make the necessary provision on the Estimates.

Mr MAKIN - I am satisfied with having entered my protest, and I shall leave the matter at that.
