Higher Education


Mr SHORTEN (MaribyrnongLeader of the Opposition) (14:13): My question is to the Prime Minister. Can the Prime Minister confirm that he has only temporarily shelved his plans for university funding for a year? And is it still the Liberal government's policy to slug Australian students with $100,000 degrees? And will the Prime Minister join with Labor and commit to our university student funding guarantee?


Mr TURNBULL (WentworthPrime Minister) (14:14): Mr Speaker, the Leader of the Opposition's generous invitation to side with him on university funding would be unlikely to find acceptance on this side of the House, you would agree. But it would be more likely to be taken seriously by anyone if he were actually to set out how his proposals would be paid for.
