Senator Douglas McClelland (NEW SOUTH WALES) (Minister for the Media) - All I need say in reply to Senator Rae is that he will appreciate that clause 16 relates to the proposed responsibilities of the State and Territory Schools Commission Advisory Boards which have the overall responsibility of tendering advice not only in connection with government schools that might receive assistance but also non-government schools. It is a very wide and all-embracing term relating to a body which is an advisory board of a general overall nature. In the case of the amendment we are dealing with now, we are talking about authorities which, in particular, conduct non-government schools. We say that the two do not relate one with the other. In any event, I remind Senator Rae that subsequently he will be moving for the deletion of clause 1 6 of the Bill.
