Sir ROBERT MENZIES - The honorable member may take it that every State was treated in the same way on this matter. The same information was conveyed to each and my colleague in another place had discussions with each. Let me recall to the honorable member what I said in this House when I introduced the States Grants (Advanced Education) Bill 1965. Having set out a list of the colleges concerned I said -

No provision has been made for Commonwealth grants to new colleges at Bathurst and Wagga. The New South Wales Government has told us that it has no proposals for these colleges at present

I emphasize " at present ". I continued -

Should such proposals be made in the future the Commonwealth Government would be prepared to give them favourable consideration.
