Senator FOREMAN —I give notice that, on the next day of sitting, I shall move:

The Senate notes-

(a) statements made by the Opposition spokesman on Education, Mr Shack, with respect to the creation of extra tertiary places on a full-fee basis for Australian students;

(b) that such a move would create a two-tiered education system, one being based on merit and the other on wealth; and

(c) that such a move would erode proper academic standards of admittance as those entrants from wealthy backgrounds would be able to buy their way past education quota requirements.
