Mr Mathews asked the Minister for Education, upon notice:

(1)   Can he give later figures of pupil-teacher ratios in primary and secondary grades of government, Catholic and other non-government schools in each State and Territory (Hansard, 26 September 1969, page 2146; 17 September 1970, page 1364 and 22 February 1972, page 71).

(2)   Can he give separate figures of enrolment in primary and secondary grades of government, Catholic and other non-government schools in each State and Territory (Hansard, 22 February 1971, page 474 and 22 February 1972, page 71).

(3)   Is it yet possible to provide these figures on a uniform basis which would allow comparisons to be drawn between sectors and States.


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

(1)   Later information has not been compiled on the basis of the previously supplied data. Revised data which is more consistent between States is currently being prepared.I will provide this information to the Honourable Member when it becomes available.

(2)   The number of pupils in primary and secondary grades in 1972 in government and non-government schools was published by the Commonwealth Statistician in 'School Enrolments 1972 (Preliminary)' and is shown below. Separate figures for Catholic schools are not yet available for 1972. This information is currently being compiled by the Commonwealth Statistician. I will provide the information to the Honourable Member as soon as possible after publication.

 

(3)   No.
