Questions without notice – Tasmania Infrastruture

Mr ALBANESE (Grayndler) (14:40): My question is addressed to the Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Infrastructure. I refer to the government’s own budget papers 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 or the Turnbull-Joyce governments?
