Higher Education


Mr HOGAN (Page) (14:33): My question is to the Minister for Education. I refer the minister to this media release by the Regional Universities Network, which:

… welcomes the announcement in the Budget of an ambitious program of reform for higher education …

How will these reforms increase opportunity for young Australians in regional areas like my electorate of Page?

The SPEAKER: Before I would call the minister, I would point out to the member for Lalor and members who are sitting in that area of the chamber that it was difficult to hear the question because of the noise that was going on. I would have some silence while we hear the Minister for Education giving a reply. Hopefully he was able to hear the question!

Opposition members interjecting

The SPEAKER: The member for Charlton will remove himself from the House under the provisions of standing order 94(a).

The member for Charlton then left the chamber.
