Federal Opposition MP Wilson Tuckey had put his foot in his mouth with allegations that the State Government had failed to provide accommodation for 12 girls at Narrogin Agricultural College.
Education Minister Kay Hallahan today said Mr Tuckey was wrong to claim that the Government had failed to make arrangements to accommodate the students at the college next year.
The Minister said Mr Tuckey owed her and the Premier an apology for his blunder.
"In typical fashion Mr Tuckey shoots first and asks questions later," she said.
"The fact is, plans are well underway to provide additional accommodation at the school in time for the start of the school year.
"Mr Tuckey should spend less time in Canberra and more in Western Australia if he wants keep up to date with local issues."
