My question is to the Minister for Education and Training, Senator Birmingham. In an article entitled 'Confidence in Liberals lost over education reforms, say Catholics', The Australian reports that, in a meeting with the Catholic Education Commission, the minister was told:

'In the 50 years we have been dealing with governments, we have never had a government not engage with us on major changes to policy.'

Given the Catholic Education Office has labelled the minister as the worst in five decades—please pay attention, Minister; I am asking you a question—how can his colleagues have any confidence in him?
