Mr ALBANESE (Grayndler) (15:02): My question is to the Prime Minister. Does last night’s budget confirm that in this financial year federal infrastructure funding has been cut by $1.6 billion to $7.6 billion and will continue to fall to $4.2 billion by 2021? Is this why the peak industry body, Infrastructure Partnerships Australia, have said the budget cuts real budgeted capital funding to its lowest level in more than a decade, using a mix of underspend, reprofiling and narrative to cover this substantial drop in real capital expenditure?
