Ms PATTEN (Northern Metropolitan) (12:25): My constituency question is for the Minister for Public Transport. Earlier this year we had the YMCA Youth Parliament here. It was not the normal Youth Parliament that we normally have, but it was still terrific for Coburg High School, who were able to take part in it and put forward a bill. Their bill was called the Free Public Transport for Students Bill 2020. Coburg High School wrote to me about this bill, and I think they are quite right: this bill should gather the support of the majority of the house, just as it did when Youth Parliament was meeting. My question to the government is: will you commit to removing the cost of public transport for our state’s schoolchildren?
