Autism Lead Teachers

The Hon. J.S. LEE (Deputy Leader of the Opposition) (15:09): Supplementary: I appreciate the parliamentary secretary taking the questions. Can the parliamentary secretary confirm whether she will be responsible for the decisions regarding funding, resource allocation and policy direction, or will the decision-making sit directly with the Minister for Education?

Members interjecting:


The Hon. E.S. BOURKE (15:09): As the President has clearly highlighted, I am not the minister. I have not been sworn in as a minister. As members on this side have rightly highlighted, it is departments that also make those decisions.
