Mr Whitlam m asked the Prime Minister, upon notice -

Does he intend to table reports by the Australian Research Grants Committee, as he does those by the Australian Universities Commission and the other educational committees listed in his answer to me on 5th May 1965 ("Hansard", page 1199), or to withhold them as he does those by the Advisory Committee on Standards for Science Facilities in Independent Secondary Schools and the other committees listed in his answer to me on 25th August 1964 ("Hansard", page 590)?


Sir Robert Menzies - The answer to the honorable member's question is as follows -

It is not usual practice to table recommendations of informal committees of whom a Minister seeks advice. The position of the Australian Universities Commission and of committees which conduct special inquiries into major issues is quite different. However, details of the special research grants which have been recommended by the Australian Research Grants Committee have been made available to honorable members as have details of the grants to schools for tha provision of science blocks.
