Questions with notice – National Road Toll

Mr ALBANESE (Grayndler) (14:56): My question is again addressed to the Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Infrastructure. I ask the Deputy Prime Minister why, at the very time the national road toll has been increasing, after decades of decline, the budget papers show that, of the $232 million allocated to the heavy vehicle safety program over the last four years, only $125 million, or half, was actually invested? How many additional truck rest stops could have been built if this allocation had actually been invested?
