Questions without Notice
Minister For Education And Youth
My question is to the Prime Minister. Can the Prime Minister confirm that the minister for education's name has been taken off his door? Did this happen before or after there was a discussion in cabinet about him being sacked?
The Prime Minister is responsible for the economic management of this country, for national security, for guiding our country through a pandemic, for many things, but he is not responsible—I'm sorry to inform the member—for sign writing or for placement of door names in this building. That might come as a shock to this undergraduate member, who has never troubled the frontbench. This question cannot be in order.
It's the advice from the Prime Minister's office and from the Prime Minister that causes the parliament to put the names of ministers on doors. If it's just a coincidence that, of all the ministers, it just happens to be the minister for education who's been disappeared in this way, then that can be the answer.
