Free Education (Prohibition of Fees and Charges) Bill 2018: First Stage

I move:

That leave be granted to introduce a Bill entitled an Act to prohibit recognised schools, subject to certain exceptions, from charging admission or enrolment fees or from otherwise seeking contributions from parents towards meeting the costs and expenses incurred in providing education at that school; and to provide for connected matters.

Is there a seconder?

I second the proposal.

Question put and agreed to.

When is it proposed to take Second Stage?

Next Tuesday. Can I say a few short words on it?

No. The Senator will have his chance next Tuesday. Is that agreed? Agreed.

Second Stage ordered for Tuesday, 8 May 2018.
