Debate resumed from 9 August, on motion by Dr Kemp:

That the bill be now read a second time.

upon which Mr Lee moved by way of amendment—

That all words after “That” be omitted with a view to substituting the following words:

“whilst not declining to give the bill a second reading, the House condemns the Government for:

(1) misusing the issue of literacy for political advantage;

(2) manipulating statistics about literacy achievement; and

(3) providing $145 million to wealthy category one schools which could have been better used improving literacy for students in government and needy non-government schools”.
