Senator DRAKE-BROCKMAN (Western Australia) (Leader of the Australian Country Party in the Senate) - You will not have any trouble from me, Mr Acting Deputy President. Education in Australia certainly will be enhanced by the allocation of the funds provided in these 5 Bills that we are discussing. The Australian Country Party welcomes these Bills and desires to facilitate their passage. Senator Rae has said that the Liberal Party is not opposing these Bills. As has already been stated also, most of the financial provisions and projects dealt with in this legislation were initiated by the former Government. My only concern about these Bills is that once again- I think that I have to express this view in this chamber because it is a States House- we see the desire of the Government to take power from the States. I deplore this sort of thing. The Country Party supports these Bills.
