Community Language Schools Program Staffing
The Hon. Dr PETER WONG: My question is addressed to the Minister for Community Services, representing the Minister for Education and Training. Is the Minister aware of drastic cuts to full-time staffing of the New South Wales community language schools program, which caters to 33,000 students across the State? Will the Minister inform the House how much Commonwealth funding has been distributed to community language schools and what commitment the Government has to see these programs have adequate funding and staffing in the future?
The Hon. CARMEL TEBBUTT: I will refer the question of the Hon. Dr Peter Wong to the Minister in the other place and undertake to get a response as soon as possible.
