MR BARR: We know that the opposition believe that investment in education is throwing good money after bad.
MR SPEAKER: Order! Withdraw that, Mr Seselja.
Mr Seselja: I am sorry, Mr Speaker. Which part?
MR SPEAKER: I heard you interject along the lines of "you should not lie"and I want you to withdraw it.
Mr Seselja: We have, a number of times, in debate, discussed the approach—
MR SPEAKER: This is not a debate. This is questions without notice. Just withdraw it.
Mr Seselja: I withdraw that, Mr Speaker.
MR BARR: Thank you, Mr Speaker. The ACT has again performed very strongly. I believe that these results cap off a very positive year for education in the territory. They come on the back of an excellent response from parents, students and staff around satisfaction levels, with more than 90 per cent satisfied with public education. This year, 2007, has seen a significant investment in our education system, both government and non-government. I am very pleased to be able to deliver these major reforms and this major investment in education. (Time expired.)
Mr Corbell: I ask that all further questions be placed on the notice paper.
