Malcolm Turnbull in negotiations with premiers over health, education funding dispute

The ABC’s Chris Uhlmann reports (3.3.16) on Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull’s direct negotiations with state premiers to break funding deadlocks over health and education services.

‘The Prime Minister has been calling premiers to try and settle a long-running health and education funding dispute before the federal election.

‘NSW is leading the negotiations with the Commonwealth, seeking an additional $7 billion in funding over four years to strike an interim deal, and is optimistic that one is close.

‘But federal Treasurer Scott Morrison has repeatedly said he is not interested in raising more tax to pay for state services.’
