Education Funding


Ms MACKLIN (Jagajaga) (14:57): My question is to the Prime Minister. Can the Prime Minister guarantee that the needs based loadings in Labor's Gonski plan for every student with a disability will be delivered to schools under his panic deal announced yesterday?


Mr ABBOTT (WarringahPrime Minister) (14:57): It is terrific to get a question from the shadow minister for clawback! She was always on about that in the last parliament. We are not going to claw back the $1.2 billion that Labor clawed back before the election.

Ms Macklin: On this International Day of People with Disability, this question deserves a serious answer.

The SPEAKER: That was not a point of order. It was an abuse of the call.

Mr ABBOTT: Assuming the shadow minister is serious, let me say that we will fully deliver the National Disability Insurance Scheme because we want to do the right thing by the people of Australia who have a disability. On schools, those loadings will be fully delivered over the coming four years.
