Senator SHEIL (QUEENSLAND) - My question is directed to the Minister representing the Minister for Labor and Immigration. Is he aware that thousands of tertiary education students will be unable to gain holiday employment this year because of the recession in business and industry? Has a survey been conducted to gauge the severity of the problem and, if so, what did the survey show? Will the Government consider some form of assistance to the many students who without work now will be forced to discontinue courses because they cannot afford accommodation and sustenance?

Senator BISHOP - The honourable senator's question was, I think, generally alluded to by Senator Carrick last week at question time and asked the Minister for Labor and Immigration to give consideration to the matter raised. I will see what information I can get in reply to Senator Sheil 's question further to what has already been asked for.
