Senator HANNAN - My question is directed to the Minister representing the Minister for Education and Science. Is it correct that the holder of any Commonwealth Government scholarship is permitted to earn up to only $6 a week during term time? If this is correct, in view of current living costs could not a more realistic amount be set? Is it a fact also that any such scholarship holder with a living allowance who wins an exhibition or other monetary prize as a reward for success in studies has that amount deducted from his allowance? Would it not be more reasonable to except such moneys won as a reward for success at studies so that they are not deducted from the scholarship holder's allowance?
