The Terms of Reference for this particular enquiry by the Senate Standing Committee on National Resources, list specifically the Commonwealth's role in rural research and extension. The status of the Australian rural research scene has been investigated and re-investigated several times in recent years and there has been some interest also in extension. Some of the more pertinent research enquiries were as follows:-
- OECDD Examiners Report on Science and Technology in Australia - 1974.
- Green Paper - Rural Policy in Australia - 1974.
- Industries Assistance Commission Report - Financing Rural Research - 1976.
- Committee of Inquiry into CSIRO - 1977.
In each instance the general conclusion was that there should be no overall reduction in the national rural research effort, and in some instances increases were suggested in specific disciplines
