The Clerk - A petition has been lodged by Sir John Cramer as follows and a copy of the petition will be referred to the appropriate Minister:

To the Honourable the Speaker and the Members of the House of Representatives in Parliament assembled: The humble petition of the undersigned electors in the State of New South Wales respectfully sheweth:

1.   The nation-wide Survey of Educational Needs undertaken by the Australian Education Council has provided clear evidence that government education in the various States is failing children on a massive scale.

2.   The following conditions at the Gladesville Infants school give further evidence of the needs in the State education system: Indoor toilet facilities for children and teachers.

Your petitioners therefore respectfully pray that your Honourable House will (i) make immediately a substantial Federal emergency grant to all State Governments for public education services and (ii) carry out a public national survey to determine needs of the States after 1975.

And your petitioners, as in duty bound, will ever pray.

Petition received.
