(2)   If so, was the application refused through lack of funds or for other reasons.

(3)   In view of the value such research could have in determining future fund allocation, will he examine the possibility of financing such a study from departmental funds.


Mr Malcolm Fraser (WANNON, VICTORIA) - The answer to the honourable member's question is as follows: (1), (2) and (3) Applications received by the Australian Advisory Committee on Research and Development in Education for financial assistance to conduct research projects are considered on merit.
