I saw Senator Back's interview on ABC television this morning. Senator Back, we will miss you. We will miss the intelligent contributions you always make to the debates in this House. Like all of my colleagues in the coalition, Senator Back's voice is welcome in this discussion. Senator Back's voice is very welcome in this discussion, and we look forward to Senator Back supporting the legislation that Senator Birmingham will bring before the chamber later in the week, because under the legislation every element of the Australian school system will do better—the government system by $11.9 billion of additional money, the Catholic system by $2.8 billion of additional money and the independent system by $3.8 billion of additional money on the basis of needs based, transparent and nationally consistent funding.
