REGIONAL SCHOOL BUS SERVICES

The Hon. G.G. BROCK (Frome) (14:42): My question is to the Minister for Education. Can the minister please update the house on the progress of the review of the regional school bus policy? With your leave, sir, and that of the house I will explain further.

Leave granted.

The Hon. G.G. BROCK: I have been asking this question since September 2018, I understand that the review was completed in February last year and here we are in 2020. I just ask the minister: can I get an update of where that is and when we can expect to have an answer?

The Hon. J.A.W. GARDNER (Morialta‚ÄĒMinister for Education) (14:43): I thank the member for the question. To my understanding, I think February last year isn’t a fair characterisation of saying the review was completed. I think that there was a body of work that was completed and then there was a great deal of further information that was explored. I will refer the member to previous answers, with the caveat that we can add a few weeks and we are that much closer to having the final answer. I am really looking forward to being able to share that with the member for Frome very soon.

Members interjecting: The SPEAKER:  Order! The Premier is called to order.
