Mr President, I ask a further supplementary question. Is the minister aware that, in addition to its current cuts to education counsellor posts, the government does not currently have education counsellors in the key emerging regions of the Middle East and Latin America? This is despite recommendations in the Chaney report for the government to increase and coordinate the promotion of Australia's international education industry in those regions. How can anyone possibly trust this short-sighted government to reverse the decline of the Australian international education industry?
