Jobs for the Future


HON ALISON XAMON (North Metropolitan) [6.20 pm]: I rise tonight to make some comments about the issue of disability employment within Western Australia. It is a matter that I am taking a particularly keen interest in at the moment and I want to make sure that young people with disability and emerging disability can avail themselves of employment options into the future. We know that around four million Australians have disability, and that is about 18 per cent of the population. Over one-third of Australian households have a person with disability.



HON PIERRE YANG (South Metropolitan) [1.03 pm]: According to standing order 57(c), I advise that I have Hon Samantha Rowe’s consent to move the motion that she gave notice of last week. It gives me great pleasure to move —

That this house notes that the reduction in TAFE student fees for high-priority courses supports access to affordable training in targeted areas of projected jobs growth and responds to emerging skills needs.
