■ M edia R elease· Jim Carlton SHADOW MINISTER FOR EDUCATION ALP BELATEDLY ADOPTING COALITION POLICY

COMMONW EALTH PARLIAMENTARY LIBRARY ______ C. I . s. _ _ _ _ _

The six member caucus committee in an attempt to be

innovative has put forward an old Coalition policy recommendation as a means of softening the Tertiary Tax.

The committee, which is reviewing the Tertiary Tax proposal has recommended that the ATJSTUDY allowance for

over 21 year old students be raised to the level of the unemployment benefit.

Twelve months ago this policy was put forward by

the Liberal Party in the 1987 election campaign.

Once again the ALP is belatedly adopting Coalition policy.
