Mr DAWKINS (Minister for Finance) —Mr Deputy Speaker, may I have your indulgence to suggest that the House have a general debate covering this Bill, the States Grants (Schools Assistance) Bill 1983 and the States Grants (Tertiary Education Assistance) Amendment Bill 1983 because they are associated measures. Separate questions will, of course, be put on each of the Bills at the conclusion of the debate.


Mr DEPUTY SPEAKER (Hon. Les Johnson) —Is it the wish of the House to have a general debate covering these measures? There being no objection, I will allow that course to be followed. I call the honourable member for Farrer (Mr Fife), whom I am pleased to welcome back to the House.
