Mr R. SMITH (Warrandyte) (12:37:36) — (14 727) My constituency question is for the Minister for Education, and in asking I refer to the minister’s answer to question 13 330. The minister stated in his answer that Donvale Primary School, Anderson’s Creek Primary School and Park Orchards Primary School were scheduled to have asbestos removed by 30 June 2018. Discussions with these schools, as well as Heatherwood School and Beverley Hills Primary School, which were not listed in the original answer, have clearly shown that either only small amounts or in fact no asbestos has been removed by your deadline. Minister, can you provide an update for the asbestos removal program for the five schools that I have listed. If there is funding for these schools, then it is urgently needed for the removal of asbestos at these schools in line with the policy this government committed to and that you promised but appear to have lied about.
The SPEAKER — Order! The member for Warrandyte knows that that is not appropriate parliamentary language.
Mr R. Smith — Lying is not very appropriate either, to be honest.
The SPEAKER (12:38:30) — Order! The member for Warrandyte will leave the chamber for the period of 1 hour.
Honourable member for Warrandyte withdrew from chamber.
