II. READING COMPREHENSION

Read the text about the political system of Australia.


Australia is an independent country within the Commonwealth. Formally the British monarch is the head of state and has royal representatives in the country and in each of the six states.

According to the Australian Constitution, that was adopted on January 1, 1901, the legislative branch is represented by the Federal Parliament. The parliament is made up of two houses: the Senate with 76 senators and the House of Representatives with 148 members. The lawmakers are elected by the people. Voting is compulsory (обязательно). Australian citizens can vote by mail. Those who abstain from (воздерживаются от) voting are fined (штрафуются). Australians are proud of the fact that secret ballot (тайное голосование) was first introduced in Australia.

The party or a coalition of parties with the majority of seats in the House of Representatives forms the Cabinet and its leader becomes Prime Minister. So, the executive branch in Australia includes the Prime Minister and the Cabinet. Like in Great Britain they come from the Federal Parliament and are responsible to it for government decisions. The main political parties are the Liberal Party and the National Party. Normally they act in coalition. The
Australian Labour Party and the Australian Democrats also play a great role in politics.

There is a question whether Australia should become a republic with an Australian head of state. The debate on the problem started several years ago. Everybody in Australia understands that a change to a republic needs the assent of the Australian people at a referendum. In February 1998, Australia began the process of severing (разъединения) its constitutional link to the Queen.

1. A. Australia is a monarchy and a parliamentary democracy.

B. Australia is a constitutional monarchy.

C. Australia is a parliamentary democracy.

2. A. The Prime Minister and the Cabinet are elected directly.

B. The Federal Parliament includes the House of Representatives and the House of Lords.

4. A. The representatives of the executive branch are responsible to the Federal Parliament.

B. The representatives of the executive branch are responsible to the Queen.

C. The representatives of the executive branch are responsible to people.

hello_html_40d8581e.png

WHAT MAKES OUR CHILDREN LEAVE HOME?

ABOUT 20% of British teenagers leave home after the age of 16. Some of them are students. They get help from the government (grants) or their parents to study away from home but they go back home during their holidays, so they have not really left.

MOST of the 20% leave home because they want to get work and experience of the world. However, accommodation is a big problem. Sometimes young people share flats, but most young people have to live in bedsitters that are rooms you sleep and live in. Some bedsitters have washinf and cooking facilities.

SOMETIMES, young people live in empty houses. This is called squatting. There are also hostels for the homeless. The main problems are loneliness, getting a job and being able to do the washing and cooking. In Britain, however, it is natural for children to leave home. In fact, only 9% of people aged over 65 live with their children and many older parents who cannot look after themselves have to live in old people’s homes.
