Senator WRIGHT (Tasmania) (Minister for Works) - I move:

Thai the Bill be now read a second lime. I ask for leave to incorporate the second reading speech in Hansard.

The ACTING DEPUTY PRESIDENT (Senator Laucke) - Is leave granted? There being no objection, leave is granted. (The document read as follows) - The existing legislation provides for recurrent grants to non-government schools in the States at specified rates for each primary and secondary pupil without limit to the period of operation of the grants. The introduction in 1973 of a different basis for determining these rates, as proposed in the States Grants (Schools) Bill 1972, requires the termination of the present arrangements at the end of 1972. Therefore, the purpose of this Bill is to limit the period of operation of the States Grants (Independent Schools) Act 1969- 1972 to the end of 1.972.

Debate (on motion by Senator Wheeldon) adjourned.
