All will be revealed

The government’s announcement yesterday of $134m for regional universities stated it would be funded by “capping the growth of funding for the Research Support Programme.” But when CMM asked the minister’s office for details a response came from the Department of Education and Training,  that “further details will be outlined in MYEFO.” Good-o but as the government surely knows what hit individual universities will take it would help them with budgeting to get the news out now rather than waiting for the mid-year budget update, which can be much closer to Christmas.

As Johnny Mercer famously put it, the country’s “in the very best of hands.”
