THE carbon tax will be the hot issue thrown at Prime Minister Julia Gillard and Federal Treasurer Wayne Swan for discussion when they visit the south-west next week.
Redbank Plains State High School will host the Community Cabinet on July 10 to allow members of the community to raise issues directly with Ms Gillard, Mr Swan, Member for Blair Shayne Newman and Member for Oxley Bernie Ripoll.
Mr Ripoll said he was expecting a good roll out next Tuesday.
"It's a real tribute for the western corridor to be holding the meeting in Redbank Plains," he said.
Growth and the cost of living, along with the carbon tax and its impact, would be the main topics likely to be put up for discussion.
"It's a good opportunity to have these discussions about the the carbon tax, to remind people of the compensation available to them and the jobs it will generate," Mr Ripoll said.
It will be a once-in-a-life-time opportunity for Redbank Plains State High students who will provide entertainment and catering on the night.
Conductor James Humphry said it would be one of the best events his 13-piece student band would have played at.
"They haven't played for dignatories before," he said.
Mr Humphry said band students were busy practising from 8am on the last day of school before holidays.
Clint Fox and Bonnie Rollason said they were looking forward to playing for the Prime Minister.
"It's a very prestigous event for our school," Bonnie said.
"We don't get people like Ms Gillard coming to events here, so it is great for our school."
