Senator JESSOP - My question, addressed to the Minister representing the Minister for Education and Science, follows upon a previous question put to the Attorney-General by Senator McManus. I refer to the improper use of Commonwealth Government funds paid by the universities to student unions and used for the payment of fines or otherwise to assist those who might be in breach of the law. I ask the Minister whether the attention of the Australian Universities Commission can be drawn to this matter so that the individual governing bodies, that is, the councils and senates of the universities, may be invited to give it earnest attention?

Senator WRIGHT - I believe this is a serious matter which if developed will erode the confidence and integrity of universities in the minds of the public and more particularly the potential undergraduate students. I. have no doubt that the Minister I represent will immediately give the matter serious consideration.
