Schools, Specialist Support

The Hon. S.G. WADE (14:39): My question is to the parliamentary secretary to the Premier, regarding autism. Can the assistant minister advise the council whether the government's $28 million autism plan for schools is new money to the budget, or is it funded out of existing education department resources?

The Hon. E.S. BOURKE (14:39): Thank you to the member for his question. The funding has been made available. It was highlighted in the budget papers. I have answered this question previously, and that is on the record, my answer to this question.
