Senator Douglas McClelland (NEW SOUTH WALES) asked the Minister for Health, upon notice:

(1)   What forms of cadetship, if any, have been made available in recent years by the Commonwealth Serum Laboratories to young men and women who have recently completed their schooling and intend going on to a university, a college of advanced education, a technical college or similar educational institution.

(2)   What forms of cadetship have been made available this year by the Commonwealth Serum Laboratories.

Senator Sir KENNETH ANDERSON The answer to the honourable senator's question is as follows:

(1)   For many years the Commonwealth Serum Laboratories Commission has offered cadetships in Biochemistry to a small number of students completing their university entrance examination. The selected cadets pursue a full-time university course leading to a Bachelor Degree in Science. Three or four cadetships are offered each year and the academic standards of the selected candidates are always very high. The Commission also periodically sponsors a member of its staff to study for a higher degree.

(2)   Three cadetships in Biochemistry were offered to students commencing their university courses in 1972.
