Mr McVEIGH (DARLING DOWNS, QUEENSLAND) - I wanted also to say something on an important matter which has not been commented on by previous speakers in the debate. It concerns the problems of adults. We have to be concerned about the children but let us spare a thought for the adults who have a problem in this regard also. I would hope that the Minister for Education not only would relate Government activity to the area of children's problems but would also devise special means to find adults with problems and, having found them, have programs designed and set up in certain areas in order to allow the adults concerned to overcome their very serious hardship. My final comment on behalf of the Committee is to express to you personally, Mr Speaker, our thanks for giving us the germ of an idea and for the support that you were able to rally around us from the whole Parliament

Question resolved in the affirmative.
