Regional and rural transport infrastructure- Question without notice
Mr O'Sullivan— My question is to the Minister for Regional Development. Minister, in November 2016 you told Parliament that regional Victoria was a major winner due to the sale of the lease of the port of Melbourne. You said at least $970 million from the proceeds would be invested in regional and rural infrastructure. Last week at the Public Accounts and Estimates Committee the Treasury secretary confirmed your government had short-changed regional Victoria by a whopping $723 million. When did you become aware that regional Victoria was being short-changed by the Premier and the Treasurer?
