Mr Whitlam asked the Minister for Education and Science, upon notice:

On what occasions and to what extent has his Department consulted with the Universities Commission and the radio and television stations concerning the establishment of an open university like that proposed by the Venables Committee in Britain in November 1968.


Mr N H Bowen (PARRAMATTA, NEW SOUTH WALES) - The answer to the honourable member's question is as follows:

My Department has not consulted with the Australian Universities Commission or with the radio and television stations concerning the establishment of an open university.

However, I have personally given some consideration to the possibility of such a development, among other possible developments, and have consulted the Australian Universities Commission. But my consideration of the matter has not reached a point at which I can make any statement to the honourable member.
