Question without notice – Infrastructure

Mr ALBANESE (Grayndler) (14:49): Thank you Mr Speaker. My question is to the Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Infrastructure and Transport. I refer to the coalition government’s budget papers and the final budget outcome document. Is the infrastructure minister aware that the difference between what was promised in each of the budget papers and what was actually invested in Queensland’s infrastructure is $1.0289 billion? How does the minister explain this over one billion dollar cut in real terms just in Queensland’s infrastructure; and how many jobs for Queenslanders would have been created had this investment actually occurred and not just been promised?
