The TEMPORARY CHAIRMAN (Senator Wood (QUEENSLAND) -Order! I ask Senator James McClelland and Senator Wilkinson to remain silent while the honourable senator is speaking; otherwise we cannot hear.


Senator RAE - Thank you, Mr Temporary Chairman. What it means to anyone who is not entirely bereft of logic is that there are some who will get less and some who will get more but everybody gets something.


Senator James McClelland (NEW SOUTH WALES) - Where does he say that everybody gets something?


Senator RAE - Senator JamesMcClelland, you are so devoid of logic that I do not expect to have to respond to you.


Senator James McClelland (NEW SOUTH WALES) - Will you tell us where he says that?


Senator RAE - I will repeat it for Senator James McClelland 's benefit. It is not a bad point to repeat anyway. Mr Beazley said:

.   . allocated on the basis of need it means that the poorer schools will get most.

If it is said that the poorer schools will get most, then from the point of view of logic the converse is that the richer schools will get some but less. He did not say for a moment that the poorer schools will get all there is and that the others will get nothing.


Senator James McClelland (NEW SOUTH WALES) - He did not say that the richest would get anything.


Senator Greenwood - Yes, he did, at Haberfield and various other occasions.


Senator James McClelland (NEW SOUTH WALES) - Tell us where he said it.
