QUESTIONS WITHOUT NOTICE
STATE TRANSPORT BUDGET
My question is directed to the Minister for Transport.
Why don't you ask the Premier?
Why does the Minister not ask the Premier? Has he heard of dorothy dixers?
Order! I call the Leader of the Opposition to order. I call the member for Vaucluse to order.
I address my question to the Minister for Transport. Following a $205 million blowout in the Minister's budget, has he been ordered to report to the Cabinet budget committee on a bimonthly basis to ensure that he meets his rail performance targets and sticks to his budget? Does
this extraordinary intervention by the Minister's Cabinet colleagues mean that his portfolio finances have been taken out of his hands and effectively placed in receivership?
