Mr Stewart asked the Minister representing the Minister for Education, upon notice:

(   1 ) What are the locations of Government education institutions in New South Wales which provide secretarial courses for students.

(2)   How many students can be accommodated in these courses at each of the locations.

(3)   How many prospective students are rejected, particularly in rural areas, because of excess applications.

(4)   What other educational institutions exist in which a person desiring to follow a secretarial career can enrol for tuition, and where are these located.

Mr Viner -The Minister for Education has provided the following reply to the honourable member's question:

Secretarial courses in New South Wales are conducted in Government technical colleges and the Nepean College of Advanced Education.

I do not have the information the honourable member requires for technical colleges as Government technical colleges in New South Wales are administered by the New South Wales Department of Technical and Further Education which also determines policy on the location of courses, provision of accommodation and admission of students.

Enrolments in Secretarial Studies at Nepean College of Advanced Education in 1 976 totalled 9. The course was first offered in 1976 and I know of no eligible applicants who were refused admission to the course.
