Mr Kennedy asked the Minister for Education and Science, upon notice:

(1)   How many (a) Catholic and (b) non-Catholic private schools in Victoria, after originally, being visited by a representative of the Secondary Science Standard Committee and being assessed as eligible for a given number of laboratories, later qualified for additional laboratories after a further visit or visits and a further assessment or assessments.

(2)   What were the names of the schools that qualified for additional laboratories, and what were the numbers for which they qualified.

(3)   On what grounds did these schools as a whole qualify for additional laboratories.

Mr Malcolm Fraser (WANNON, VICTORIA) - The answer to the honourable member's question is as follows: (1), (2) and (3) The provision of the information requested would require time and resources of staff not available to my Department, which has no requirement for maintaining separately information of such a kind. I- emphasise that the process of assessing the entitlement to assistance of individual non-government schools for science facilities has been a continuous process since the original visits made to such schools by members of the Commonwealth Advisory Committee on Standards for Science Facilities in Independent Secondary Schools. Schools qualify for additional laboratories only when the Committee is satisfied that their provision is fully, justified by educational need.
