My question is to the Minister for Finance, Senator Cormann. I refer to the minister's statement last night that the Turnbull government's school-funding formula beyond 2018 is:

… essentially CPI plus a growth factor for enrolment growth purposes, and that is the number that is currently reflected in the budget, and that reflects the government's policy position.

Does he stand by this statement or does he agree with Minister Birmingham that these budget figures are 'indicative only'?
