Senator KEEFFE asked the Minister representing the Minister for Education and Science, upon notice:

Is political censorship carried out, at the Minister's direction, in respect of school student newspapers such as the Tweed River High School publication, which, during a recent election campaign, published an article by the Australian Labor Party candidate that was subsequently censored? If not, will the Minister ensure that such censorship is abolished in view of the fact that all finance for the Australian education system is derived from the Commonwealth Government?
