Summary

Edit

The majority voted against amendments introduced by Tasmanian Senator Jacqui Lambie, which means they failed.

Senator Lambie explained that:

These amendments retain $1 billion in the Education Investment Fund and transfer the remaining amount to the Emergency Response Fund. I don't expect these to pass, and let's consider why. This bill whips up a $4 billion opportunity to fund TAFE and turns it into a $4 billion fund to fund disaster responses. The government say: 'Don't worry about that. TAFEs have had enough money as it is. We're giving them plenty of money. They don't need $4 billion. You know what they say!'

I say you're living in a fantasy land. You think TAFEs have too much money? Where are you living!
