Health and Education a priority

Money B

Western Australia might want to talk about the GST, but Tasmania and every other state and territory has other ideas about what should be discussed at a meeting of the nation's leaders.

They want the Abbott government to reverse savage budget cuts for their public hospitals and schools as they sit down at the Council of Australian Governments in Canberra.

Premier Will Hodgman along with the Premiers of NSW, Victoria and Queensland all say health and education funding are their priority, while a national approach on domestic violence will also be another issue of importance.
