Senator MURPHY (New South WalesAttorneyGeneral) - I will consider that point. I think it is a sensible suggestion. After all, a lot of public money is being expended here and some attention ought to be paid to its being expended wisely and to ensuring that the people who are receiving counselling are getting good counselling. I have approved of money being expended on an evaluation of the existing courses. There is some money appropriated for a preliminary evaluation. There should be a full scale evaluation, in everybody's interest, of the work that is being done to determine whether it is being done in the proper way and also whether the training is satisfactory. Honourable senators will notice that I have suggested- perhaps it is in line with Senator Carrick 's proposal, if I may be permitted to refer to it, and with other suggestionsan institute of family studies. It may well be that through such an institute some attention can be given to these topics, in addition to family counselling. I assure Senator Guilfoyle that I will give full consideration to what she proposes.
