The word 'delusional' is the only word you can think of when you hear the comments that are being made by members on the opposite side of the house, members of the government, with regard to this matter of public importance (MPI). In fact when you read the statement of the matter of public importance that was proposed by the Minister for Public Transport today, you have to check the date again: is it 1 April? No, it is 2 April. The government has missed the date, because this would have to be an April Fools Day trick if ever there was one.

In the first term of the Bracks government Labor identified the opportunity to relocate the State Revenue Office to Ballarat. Labor acted immediately and the new site at Mount Helen opened within two and a half years of its coming to office. By contrast, this government has done nothing for Ballarat in its three-plus years in office.
I raise a matter for the attention of the Minister for Higher Education and Skills. I ask the minister to take action to clarify for the people of Ballan and region the coalition policy in regard to TAFE and to confirm or otherwise that the coalition plans to construct a new TAFE or technical school in Ballan.
