Senator REID(10.30) —I raise a matter which comes within the portfolio of the Minister for Education and Youth Affairs (Senator Ryan). I ask her: When will she make available the report of the Australian Capital Territory Consultative Committee on Education under Self-Government? It is a report which I understand she has had for some time and I would like to know when she will table it in the Parliament and thus make it available to the public so that it can be commented upon in the current debate on the advent of self-government. It is clear from the report of the Commonwealth Grants Commission which was tabled today that education under self-government is a very relevant consideration. We have before us the White report of the Committee of Review of the Role and Functions of the National Capital Development Commission, we have the task force on self government; and we have the Grants Commission report. In view of the importance of education I ask the Minister to make the report available immediately or at least to let us know why she will not make it available for us to consider.

Question resolved in the affirmative.

Senate adjourned at 10.32 p.m.
