Senator DAVIDSON (South Australia) - I ask the Minister for the Media (Senator Douglas McClelland) to respond to the considerable emphasis which was placed, during the discussion on this amendment, on Article 26 of the United Nations Declaration of Human Rights as it relates to education. It was put forward strongly by Senator Rae, supported as I recall by Senator McManus and heavily underlined by myself in the quotation from the Declaration and in the quotation from the debate in the other place. I may be wrong, but as I recall it the Minister did not refer to this matter. Surely the Declaration of Human Rights as it relates to education contains points of view which are not only worth writing into legislation but also are worth a reply. I would be appreciative if the Minister would give reasons, particularly in relation to today's events in this chamber and to the extract which I quoted from the debate in the other place.
