Senator RYAN —During Question Time Senator Reid asked a question regarding the future of a proposed primary school at McKellar. I am now advised by the Australian Capital Territory Schools Authority that at a meeting on 21 October a decision was taken not to build a primary school at McKellar. Children at McKellar will be accepted into nearby schools, primarily the Evatt Primary School. I have been advised that the major factor in the Schools Authority's decision is the relatively small size of the suburb of McKellar and the proximity of first class education facilities nearby. The Authority informs me that a pre-school unit will operate in McKellar from the beginning of 1987.
