Questions Without Notice (20 June 2017)

Date: Tuesday, 20 June 2017 3:05 PM
Location: House of Representatives

Mr SHORTEN (Maribyrnong—Leader of the Opposition) (15:02):  My question is to the Prime Minister. The Prime Minister's policy to cut $22 billion from schools is a complete and absolute shambles. Public schools hate it. The Catholic schools hate it. The government's own members despise it. Isn't it time for the government just to drop the $22 billion cut? Why not go back to the drawing board over the winter break and bring back something in the next session, because this is not going so well, is it, Prime Minister?

Mr FRYDENBERG (Kooyong—Minister for the Environment and Energy) (15:03):  The Leader of the Opposition should know better about the Turnbull government's school funding plan, because there are 54 schools—every school—and over 30,000 school students in the member for Maribyrnong's electorate that will benefit. There will be an average of $7.2 million extra for schools in the Leader of the Opposition's electorate. St Albans Secondary College will get a $13 million increase over 10 years. Rosehill Secondary College will get a $10 million increase over 10 years. St Christopher's School, a Catholic school, will get an over $12 million increase over 10 years. And Catholic Regional College will get an over $13 million increase over 10 years—Catholic. The Leader of the Opposition should know: the numbers tell a pretty powerful story.
