Mr COPEpresented from certain citizens of Australia a petition showing that preschool and after-school education facilities are in urgent need within the Australian community. The shortage has become more acute as more mothers join the work force; in advanced countries pre-school and afterschool education are recognised as essential aspects of education for all children.

The petitioners pray that the House of Representatives take immediate steps to provide the necessary finance to enable

State Education Departments and local government authorities to establish preschool centres; after-school centres; and facilities for training the staff for such centres.

Petition received and read.
