Senator BRANSON (WESTERN AUSTRALIA) - I direct a question to the Minister in charge of Commonwealth Activities in Education and Research. Has the attention of the Minister been directed to a vicious attack on Catholic schools in the leading article in this morning's issue of the " Australian " in which it was stated that Catholic school standards were low and often appalling and that they were starved of teaching talent? Did the Minister also note that it was further said that a quarter of Australian children were getting substandard education at Catholic schools? Will the Minister inform the Senate whether during his recent investigations of private schools he found these charges to be true or utterly false?
