What’s on the record

Shadow Education Minister Alan Tudge told the House of Reps Wednesday that teacher initiatives the government announced in the budget are “strongly supported by the coalition.”

“They did indeed come out of the work of the initial teacher education review, which I commissioned when I was minister,” Hansard recorded, (p 151).

It was part of an admirably bipartisan exchange with Education Minister Jason Clare – which is why CMM suspects Hansard either did not get the next bit right or Mr Tudge did not mean what his words sounded like,  “I’m pleased that the government is taking them up, and I hope they’ll see them fall through.”
