Senator WRIGHT (TASMANIA) (Minister for Works) - I assure the honourable senator that there is no element of austerity governing the employment of teachers in the Australian Capital Territory. If qualified persons are available, as the honourable senator suggests, and there is a deficiency of teachers, I am sure that those persons would be employed. Apart from what 1 know of the general situation, I am not aware of a particular deficiency of teachers. However, I shall refer the matter to the Minister and ask him to provide the information for the benefit of the honourable senator.
