Mr BIRD (BATMAN, VICTORIA) - I address a question to the Treasurer. Is it a fact that large numbers of Asian students are coming to Australia, with and without Colombo plan sponsorship, to receive educational help ranging from secondary school training to higher university degree courses, and that these numbers are expected to increase substantially in the next year or two? Does the Government recognize that this increase will mean that Australia's hard-pressed educational system will have to be expanded to accommodate additional students? Has the Government any plans for assisting the States in this matter?
