Dr SOUTHCOTT (6:23 PM) —I have a brief question to the Deputy Prime Minister. I would like to ask her about the $14.7 billion Building the Education Revolution, which she says will support jobs and which the department says is all about maximising jobs. I would like her estimate of how many jobs will be supported by the $14.7 billion Building the Education Revolution. I would like her estimate of how many jobs will be created or supported by the $600 million Jobs Fund. I would like her estimate on how many jobs will be created for young Australians through the Compact with Young Australians. I also ask the minister: is she aware that, of the 85,000 places set aside for apprenticeships in the Productivity Places Program, only 154 places have been taken up? Does she regard this as a success? Does she regard this as a failure? What is she going to do about it?
