Mr MALCOLM FRASER (Wannon) - I have 4 amendments which refer to clauses 3 and 14. They read:

Clause 3.

(1)   In this Act, unless the contrary intention appears - " school authority " means -

(a)   in relation to a non-systemic school - the person or body conducting the school; and

(b)   in relation to a Catholic systemic school - such person or body as the Minister, on the advice of the Board for Catholic Systemic

Schools for the State in which the school is situated, declares in writing to be the school authority for that school for the purposes of this Act; " special school " means a school in a State (whether or not it is a school or institution at which primary education or secondary education is provided) -

(a)   at which special education is provided for handicapped children, or if education other than such special education is provided at that school, that school in so far as it provides such special education; and

(b)   which is approved by the Minister, in writing, on the advice of the State Education Minister for the State, for the purposes of Part VI;

Clause 14.

(1)   The financial assistance to a State constituted by a payment of moneys under section 13 in respect of recurrent expenditure of Catholic systemic schools in that State is granted on that conditions that -

(b)   the payment to a school authority (in this paragraph referred to as " the relevant payment ") will not be made unless the authority agrees with the State, before or at the time of accepting the payment, to be bound by the following conditions: -

(i)   the authority will ensure that an amount equal to the relevant payment is applied, in the year in which the relevant payment is made or not later than 3 months after the end of that year -

(a)   if the relevant payment is in respect of recurrent expenditure of one school only - for the purpose of meeting recurrent expenditure of that school; or

(b)   if the relevant payment is in respect of recurrent expenditure of two or more schools for which the authority is the school authority - for the purpose of meeting recurrent expenditure of those schools, and of the authority in respect of those schools, in such proportions as the Minister, on the advice of the Board for Catholic Systemic Schools for the State, determines;

I move:

In the definition 'school authority', omit " on ", substitute " in accordance with ".

In paragraph (b) of the definition 'special school', omit " on ", substitute " in accordance with ".

In sub-clause (1), paragraph (a), omit " on ", substitute " in accordance with ".

In sub-clause (1), paragraph (b) (i) (b), omit " on ", substitute " in accordance with ".
