Mr Scholes asked the Minister for Education, upon notice:

What details of the proposed fourth university in Victoria had been received by the Australian Universities Commission, prior to the tabling of ils report on 3rd May 1973, other than from Press reports.

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

The Australian Universities Commission received a broad outline of possible ways in which the fourth university might be developed in discussion with tha State Minister of Education on 13th October 1972. At that time the State had not taken a decision about the form of the university or its location. On 12th February 1973 the Premier of Victoria made an announcement that the proposed fourth university would take the form of a multi-campus university with branches at Ballarat, Bendigo and Geelong and provided some further broad details of the State's decision. Some further information was provided by the State Minister of Education in a letter to the Australian Universities Commission in February 1973 but the detailed information sought by the Commission had not been provided prior to the tabling on 3rd May 1973 of the 'Report on the location, nature and development of institutions of tertiary education in the Sydney, Melbourne and Albury/Wodonga Region'.
