In his statement, Mr Milton Dick MP, the Member for Oxley, said school students had asked him why this parliamentary session isn’t called ‘answer time’. Mr Dick told the House, ‘I thought that was a really good suggestion. When you ask questions, you expect answers. I've got my own feedback from a number of my schools and I'm looking forward to the committee continuing to engage with and listen to the wider community, particularly young people.’
