Senator TATE (TASMANIA) - I ask the Minister representing the Minister for Education whether it is a fact that the Government has had before it for at least 1 8 months a proposal from the University of Tasmania to establish a special study centre for marine and Antarctic sciences. Is it also a fact that the project accords with the Callaghan inquiry recommendations and has been the subject of extensive favourable discussions with Professor Karmel? Having had a term of office in the Education portfolio, does the Minister acknowledge that consideration of the matter within the bureaucracy has been exhausted and a decision is now required? When will the Government announce its long-delayed response to this important and worthwhile proposal?

Senator CARRICK - Since the matter demands the day to day knowledge of the present Minister for Education, I will bring it to his attention and seek his reply.
