Mr E G Whitlam (WERRIWA, NEW SOUTH WALES) - I address my question to the Minister representing the Minister for Education. It is prompted by the recent closure or threatened closure of some well known and long established New South Wales private schools to which successive Federal governments for many years have granted very large sums for buildings and equipment. I ask whether the Government has considered taking some security over school buildings and equipment for which it has granted financial assistance. What steps will be taken to ensure that public investment in education is not placed in jeopardy or set at nought by inadequate or irresponsible school councils?
