Mr BIRD (BATMAN, VICTORIA) - Has the attention of the Treasurer been directed to the statement made by the Premier of Victoria, Mr. Bolte, that it is costing the Victorian Government £500,000 a year to teach and train Asian students who are in Victoria under the Colombo plan or privately? If the Premier's statement is correct, does it mean that State governments are expected to contribute to meeting the cost of the Colombo plan?
