During question time, the Minister for Regional Development, Local Government and Territories, in her answer, made some spurious allegations about the processes and integrity of the previous government with regard to allocating money to local government. I wish to point out that, under the government that I was a minister in, we had record funding for local roads and community infrastructure. There were extra rounds of Roads to Recovery and Roads of Strategic Importance. If the minister doesn't know the answer to a question, she should just sit down, rather than try and cast aspersions on previous governments.
