Questions without notice – Infrastructure

Mr ALBANESE (Grayndler) (14:54): My question is again addressed to the Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Infrastructure and Transport. I refer to the government’s own budget papers for his own portfolio, which show that federal infrastructure investment in Tasmania will fall from $174 million this financial year to $53 million in 2019-20. Is this a reflection of the fact that not a single new federally funded major infrastructure project has been commenced under either the Abbott-Joyce, Turnbull-Joyce or Turnbull-McCormack governments?
