Senator HANSON-YOUNG (South Australia) (16:26): I seek leave to make a short statement.

The PRESIDENT: Leave is granted for one minute.

Senator HANSON-YOUNG: The Australian Greens will be supporting this motion and this inquiry. What has happened in South Australia and in the TAFE system has been a total disgrace. Eight hundred students are now having to consider whether they start their courses all over again—because they didn't even have trained people training them! That is the disgrace and the scandal that has been unfolding in South Australia. The state Labor government cut $91 million from TAFE SA, and they wonder why on earth things have fallen over. It's a disgrace. This inquiry will do something to shed some light on it, but let me put on the record now: the Liberal Party, federally and across the country in state governments, also have a lot to answer for.

Question agreed to.
