Mr Barry Jones (LALOR, VICTORIA) asked the Minister for Education, upon notice, on 25 March 1 980:

(1)   How many students in the Electoral Divisions of (a) Lalor and (b) Kooyong (i) attended Form I (or its equivalent) and (ii) attended Form VI (or its equivalent) and (iii) completed the Higher School Certificate or its equivalent in the last year for which statistics are available.

(2)   How many students in the Electoral Divisions of (a) Lalor and (b) Kooyong (i) commenced courses and (ii) completed courses or gained degrees or diplomas in the last year for which figures are available at (A) universities, (B) colleges of advanced education (including constituents of the Victoria Institute of Colleges or the State College of Victoria ) and (C) technical and further education institutions.

(3)   In respect of each Division, is he able to state how many persons are aged between (a) 12-18 years and (b) 18-24 years.

Mr Fife -The answer to the honourable member's question is as follows:

Information requested by the honourable member is not held and the question cannot be answered without extensive deployment of staff resources. I do not consider that the request justifies the diversion of such resources from other essential duties.

In respect to question (1) and (2) I suggest that the honourable member may wish to arrange for an approach to be made to State education authorities and institutions to ascertain whether the information sought can be provided from those sources.

Suggest corrections
