The state needs to devise a better plan for infrastructure spending, says Ruth Forrest
THE annual Budget circus is about to get under way. Will it be the same old vaudeville that we’ll be glad to see the back of after a few frantic weeks, or will we see some fresh performances and displays of leadership? Is it too much to hope for a spirit of greater co-operation to move this state forward a notch or two?
Ms FORREST (Murchison ) - I will refer to a range of information here. I think it is important to explore this very serious topic quite broadly. As the member for Rumney pointed out, this is a serious issue and a really important matter. I do not think anyone in our community - and certainly not in our Parliament - would not do whatever they can to assist keeping children safe.
