Senator COHEN (VICTORIA) - In the absence of the Minister in Charge of Commonwealth Activities in Education and Research, I address my question to the Leader of the Government in the Senate. Has the Minister seen reports in this morning's "Age" that the Victorian Secondary Teachers Association and the Victorian Teachers Union have condemned the Federal Government's delay in dealing with the report of the committee on tertiary education? In view of the serious financial and accommodation difficulties facing universities, and the massive apprehension in the universities and the community about the future of tertiary education, can the Minister give the Senate some reasonable indication as to when the Government will be making up its mind about the report? In the meantime, is there any good reason why the report should not be made public so that the universities and other educational authorities may have an opportunity to study and discuss it?
