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.
