There’s $90billion worth of projects, and South Australia gets $86billion worth of it. On specific new infrastructure, there’s over $1billion for South Australia while the $100million they mentioned for here in Western Australia was actually announced first in June last year, and then again in March, and today again for a third time. It’s a pathetic contribution at a time when WA has very high unemployment. We need a fair share of naval shipbuilding work.
In response to last night’s Federal Budget, the Member for Fremantle, Josh Wilson MP, today confirmed what many Western Australians have bitterly realised, that the state continues to be taken for granted by the Turnbull Government.
The 2017 Budget has confirmed the Turnbull Government’s utter contempt for every Western Australian, with not a single new dollar for any of the state’s infrastructure projects.
At a time when WA is experiencing high unemployment it is important to remember that coastal shipping should be a source of jobs and a foundation of maritime skills training.
By receiving his annual flu vaccination today, Josh Wilson MP, is hoping to highlight the value of taking this preventative measure at a time when it will provide maximum protection in advance of the peak influenza season.
