Senator GUILFOYLE (VICTORIA) - My question is directed to the Minister representing the Minister for Labour and I refer to the announcement of the Government's proposal concerning trade union training. I find the proposal of interest and I seek information. Firstly, does the Government's proposal to establish a national trade union college involve the erection of a new building in Canberra for this purpose? Secondly, will the Minister consider adding to the students and union members eligible for training courses representatives of management in order to develop greater understanding of trade union administration?

Senator CAVANAGH - I am of the belief that this proposal will not necessitate the erection of another building. I think the course is to be held in conjunction with the adult education program in the Australian Capital Territory. Whether the course will be extended in the manner suggested I do not know; it has been designed essentially for trade union training. However, I am prepared to take the matter up with the responsible Minister to see whether he wishes to reply to the question or whether he would extend the course.
