Mrs WICKS (Robertson) (16:16): As I was saying earlier in relation to these proposed reforms for current and future students, 50,000 students can look forward to benefiting from the abolition of the 25 per cent loan fee for FEE-HELP, and another 80,000 students who are studying in vocational education and training will not have to worry about the 20 per cent loan fee for VET-FEE-HELP. Our reforms mean more opportunity and more choice, particularly for students on the Central Coast. With such dynamic benefits to students, particularly those who need it most, I am very confident in supporting these reforms, because they make possible the world-class education that Australians need and deserve. I commend the bill to the House.

The DEPUTY SPEAKER ( Mr Ewen Jones ): The question is that the bill be agreed to. I give the call to the member for Wakefield.
