Mr L R JOHNSON (HUGHES, NEW SOUTH WALES) - Is the Minister aware that last week a member of the New Guinea Legislative Council contended that 200,000 native children in controlled areas of the Territory had no contact with any form of schooling? Is it a fact that an additional 10,000 teachers will be necessary to meet fully the Territory's teacher requirements? Is the Minister satisfied with the present rate of progress in the provision of educational facilities, which will not succeed in fully accommodating the Territory's 400,000 children for at least 50 years?
