Supply Bill 2018

Mr PEDERICK (Hammond) (22:24): I rise tonight to speak to the Supply Bill 2018, which is the appropriation of $6,631 million, or just over $6½ billion, so that we can keep the functions of the Public Service operating, keep the functions of government operating and keep everyone paid until the budget is approved. The budget will be announced on 4 September (which personally is a significant date, but I will leave that out). This is standard practice. I heard in the contribution from the member for Lee, and from other members on the other side, the feigned shock and horror at this spending and how there is not a vast list of budget proposals for this money to go to.

Transport Infrastructure

Mr PEDERICK (Hammond) (15:14): I rise to address a couple of issues, some I did not get to speak about in my Address in Reply contribution. I would like to discuss our Globe Link policy, which is our far-reaching policy to link Monarto around the back of the Hills, possibly around Truro, and coming out at Two Wells. What we will do is the work we have committed to, as has already been mentioned today by minister Knoll in this place. We have committed to the $20 million study to make sure that we get the right routes, the right outcomes, and that we get it done at the right costings.
