Mr RUSSELL (GREY, SOUTH AUSTRALIA) - Has the attention of the Minister for Immigration been drawn to the acute shortage of teachers in South Australia? Does he know that there are signs that the shortage of qualified teachers, particularly for secondary schools, is growing worse, despite the efforts of the South Australian Education Department to recruit sufficient teachers for training? Will the Minister take the matter up with a view to encouraging teachers to migrate to Australia from the Old Country and thereby ease the shortage of teachers, not only in South Australia, but in the Commonwealth in general?
