Senator MURPHY asked the Minister representing the Minister for Education and Science upon notice:

Has any decision been made on the question of the establishment of a university in the Riverina area of New South Wales.


Senator WRIGHT The Minister for Education and Science has provided the following answer to the honourable senator's question:

The Commonwealth Government does not initiate action to establish universities in the States. On receipt of a firm proposal by a State for the establishment of a new university, the Commonwealth considers the proposal on the advice of the Australian Universities Commission. There is no firm proposal for the establishment of a university in the Riverina area of New South Wales currently before the Commonwealth or the Australian Universities Commission.
