The ACTING DEPUTY PRESIDENT (Senator Ryan)—The President has received a letter from Senator Parry proposing that a definite matter of public importance be submitted to the Senate for discussion, namely:

The Rudd Labor Government’s continued failure to implement its ‘education revolution’ in a timely, efficient and cost effective manner, including its failure to:

(a)   deliver and connect computers in schools;

(b)   establish the trade training centres;

(c)   improve learning outcomes; and

(d)   create jobs through the Building the Education Revolution Program.

I call upon those senators who approve of the proposed discussion to rise in their places.

More than the number of senators required by the standing orders having risen in their places—

The ACTING DEPUTY PRESIDENT —I understand that informal arrangements have been made to allocate specific times to each of the speakers in today’s debate. With the concurrence of the Senate, I shall ask the clerks to set the clock accordingly.
