Senator XENOPHON (10:25 AM) —I am grateful to the minister for that answer. Does that mean that what has happened in the past in terms of funding will not necessarily happen in the future? I think that is an acknowledgement by Senator Collins. Given the very moderate and modest recommendation of government senators, which simply said, ‘With respect to transparency, you need to publish what your assets are,’ is the government concerned that there could be schools that have an enormous asset base receiving the same sort of funding as funding received by schools in Indigenous communities in the Northern Territory or the Giant Steps school for autistic students? Is that on the government’s agenda for it to consider?
