Higher Education Legislation Amendment (Student Services and Amenities, and Other Measures) Bill 2009
The Student services and amenities fee guidelines have been tabled in this chamber. They outline the purposes for which Commonwealth monies can be spent and they list a series of matters that go to such things as food and beverages; sports and recreation; clubs and societies; child care; legal services; health care; housing; employment; financial services; visual arts, performing arts and audiovisual media; debating—I can see why that would upset you!; libraries and reading rooms; student media—this is revolutionary stuff!; student study skills and advocacy; personal accident insurance; orientation information; and support services for overseas students. Nowhere there does it say anything about the Wilderness Society.
