Senator GUILFOYLE (VICTORIA) - I direct a question to the Minister representing the Minister for Education. I refer to a report in the 'Australian' of 25 October which suggests that the removal of taxation concessions for gifts to independent school building funds is under consideration. Is the Minister able to offer an assurance that there is no foundation for the report? Does the Government understand the very damaging effect on the building programs of the non-government schools which would result from such a proposal?

Senator Douglas McClelland (NEW SOUTH WALES) (Minister for the Media) - I have not seen the report but I will take up the matter with my colleague the Minister for Education and obtain a reply for the honourable senator.
