The Hon. DUNCAN GAY:
I direct my question to the Attorney General, representing the Minister for Education and Training, and it is in relation Dubbo College. Is the Minister aware of the Kennedy report, containing the views of the Dubbo community, which was delivered to Minister Firth by the consultation committee in April? Is the Minister also aware of comments by the Dubbo Teachers Association that while Minister Firth deliberates on the issue, teachers are voting with their feet and leaving the school? Given the Minister has sat on the report for five months, will the Minister provide a guarantee to release the Kennedy report immediately to allow students, teachers and parents to plan their future in Dubbo's public education?
The Hon. JOHN HATZISTERGOS:
Not surprisingly, I am not familiar with the report referred to by the member and nor am I familiar with the comments of the Dubbo Teachers Association, but I will refer the matter to the Minister and obtain an answer and advise the House in due course.
