Mr LUCHETTI (MACQUARIE, NEW SOUTH WALES) - I address a question to the Prime Minister. What was the nature of information furnished to the Government of New South Wales concerning the report of the Committee on the Future of Tertiary Education in Australia? Was the New South Wales Government consulted? Did the Australian Government indicate its willingness to provide matching grants for tertiary colleges at Bathurst and Wagga? Is it true that the New South Wales Government received very little information from the Commonwealth Government on the nature of the colleges which would attract matching grants? Did the New South Wales Government receive less information than the Government of Victoria, which accepted fi for £1 grants for colleges at Geelong, Ballarat and Bendigo, and the Queensland Government, which accepted similar grants for colleges at Toowoomba and Rockhampton? Finally, will the right honorable gentleman provide any further information required by the Government of New South Wales so that it may participate in grants for advanced education establishments at Bathurst and Wagga?
