Senator COHEN (VICTORIA) - Has the Minister in Charge of Commonwealth Activities in Education and Research seen a report in today's " Australian " of a statement by Professor John Passmore of the Australian National University that the shortage of senior staff at Australian universities will not improve until the universities provide longer leave for overseas study, discussions and research, better library facilities and higher salaries? Does the Minister agree that the so called brain drain presents a serious challenge to the universities and the Commonwealth Government? Has the Government or the Australian Universities Commission reached any conclusions as to what measures can be taken to arrest this dangerous trend?
