Mr LANE (BARTON, NEW SOUTH WALES) - Has the attention of the Prime Minister been called to a letter which appears in to-day's issue of the Canberra Times from the headmaster of the Telopea Park Intermediate High School, in which it is pointed out that although the Council of the Canberra University College has authority to grant up to four scholarships annually, only two have been awarded this year and only two were awarded last year? Is the Government also aware of the fact that the difference between the standards of the Universities of Melbourne and Sydney place Canberra students whoare working for scholarships under a considerable disability? Will the honorable gentleman endeavour to do everything possible to ensure that, as students are, as a rule, only able to accept scholarships in the year following the passing of their leaving examination, all the scholarships available are granted each year?
