Although the Liberal Government, like so many of their promises (not forgetting the Flinders Street Station plan) failed to do anything more than announce a plan.
A TIRED OLD RANT FROM THE LIBERALS
THE LIBERAL’S DISMAL RECORD IN SUPPORTING REGIONAL TOURISM
It seems the standard practice of conservative governments — of Liberal-Nationals governments — is that when they come to power they want to make cuts. They do not like to spend on those things that the community sees as important. They do not like to see spending on education, on health and in so many other areas that are important to our community, and they just make cuts. Of course we saw that when the Baillieu government was elected in 2010. The first thing they did when they came to office was to say, 'No, we can't be spending so much on education. We can't be spending so much in a range of other areas' — in ambulance services and so on. In terms of some of the projects that Labor had proposed, they cut those too.
I do not know of any formal investigations regarding the member for Brunswick, and that is what this tirade seems to be about. I would ask you to bring the member back to speaking, if he can, on the subject of formal investigations and not just muckraking on a broad range of things that he might want to bring up. He should keep to the MPI which his side of the house has put forward.
