Senator MURPHY (New South WalesAttomeyGeneral) - A number of applications are made and some of these must be rejected because they are not taken as being within the concept of marriage counselling. It all depends on what is being done. I think the simplest way is for the organisations to submit applications which would be examined. The intent of this would not be to move into areas in which the Minister for Tourism and Recreation (Mr Stewart), the Minister for Education (Mr Beazley) and other Ministers are handing out funds in various ways. It is intended to ensure that the moneys reach the proper marriage counselling organisations, as we would understand them. In dealing with this sort of classical marriage counselling there is no over abundance of funds.

Senator Davidson - It means what it says?

Senator MURPHY -Yes. It would not be a light extension away to areas which are only marginally concerned with marriage counselling.
