Senator RAE (Tasmania) -I wish to respond to a matter raised by Senator Mulvihill not in order to continue the debate but in order to make an explanation. Perhaps Senator Mulvihill 's implication was made through misunderstanding because he has not heard me say it enough so I will say it again. The Liberal Party of Australia for which I speak in relation to education does not assert that there is not a proper case for the provision of extra funds to overcome the disadvantages about which Senator Mulvihill was speaking. I simply want to make that quite clear to Senator Mulvihill and the Committee. Whilst there may be discussion and debate about across-the-board per capita grants or whatever else it may be there is no question so far as we are concerned that there is not a need in Australia for the provision of extra funds to identifiable areas of what the Australian Labor Party likes to call need as defined by its needs policy. I may use different terms but the concepts are similar.
