Mr Lloyd asked the Minister for 'Education, upon notice:

(1)   How has the $3m provided for needy tertiary students been allocated to the various universities and colleges of advanced education.

(3)   How much of the $3m has been made available as (a) grants and(b) loans.

(4)   How much has been made available (a) to pay fees and (b) for living allowances.

Mr Beazley (FREMANTLE, WESTERN AUSTRALIA) (Minister for Education) - The answer to the honourable member's question is as follows:

(1)   The States Grants (Universities) Act 1973 and the States Grants (Advanced Education) Act 1973, which were recently passed by the Parliament, make provision for the allocation of unmatched Commonwealth funds to the States to be used as loans and grants to needy students in universities and colleges of advanced education. The legislation requires that annual reports are to be provided by universities to the Australian Universities Commission, and by the States, on behalf of colleges of advanced education, to the Australian Commission on Advanced Education. These reports will give statistics and information on the distribution and use of the funds provided under the legislation. It is intended that the kind of information sought by the honourable member will be covered by these reports, and he will be provided with the information once the reports are available.

(2)   , (3) and(4) See my answer to (1) above.
