(1)   How many applications have been received for each level of assistance made available byhim for the education of isolated children.

(2)   What is the percentage in each case of the number of children he expects to apply for assistance under this scheme.

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

(1)   and (2) The scheme of assistance for isolated children is in its very early stages. Applications are just beginning to reach the State Offices of my Department. So far less than 1,000 applications have been received and it is not possible at the present time to provide details of those applications in the form requested by the honourable member. Overall it is expected that the new measures may assist about 22,000 primary and secondary pupils.
