Mr MacKELLAR (WARRINGAH, NEW SOUTH WALES) - My question is directed to the Minister for Education and Science. I refer him to an allegation contained in a letter to a newspaper this morning that the Federal Government is providing state aid for a school in Sydney owned and operated by Japanese nationals. I ask the Minister: Is there any truth in this allegation?

Mr Malcolm Fraser (WANNON, VICTORIA) - There is no truth whatsoever in the allegation. My predecessor made the decision that this particular school was not a school which should attract Commonwealth support. The Commonwealth does not provide per capita grants to this school. It provides no capital assistance to this school. It does not provide assistance to this school and this sort of information is perhaps typical of the propaganda that is sometimes used in this direction.
