I am asking where is the clause which mentions the schools which are receiving assistance and the standards by which they are to be provided with assistance. Clause 13 states that the amount of per capita assistance is to be based upon an assessment of 40 per cent of the costs of recurrent expenditure in educating a child in a government school. The point I was making is that in fact there is no statement in the Bill about need.
