Questions without notice – Deputy Prime Minister

Mr ALBANESE (Grayndler) (14:56): My question is to the Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Infrastructure. I refer to his answers today in which he has defended Victoria receiving under 10 per cent of federal infrastructure funding by mentioning funds that have been reallocated; argued Inland Rail would benefit Tasmania; defended South Australia receiving two per cent of funds in his portfolio by talking about his colleague’s portfolio; and, on the northern roads program being not spent, he referred to the Nullarbor. Isn’t the infrastructure minister simply not up to the job that he has been appointed to? (Time expired)
