Roads Portfolio Budget Information
The Hon. GREG PEARCE: My question is directed to the Minister for Roads, and Minister for Commerce. Is he aware that information provided as a matter of course in previous budgets in relation to agency programs, outcomes and outputs as well as average staffing measures has not been included in the budget papers for his portfolio released yesterday? Is he further aware that it is claimed in the budget papers that the Roads and Traffic Authority [RTA] cannot even provide a date for commencement of road projects? Does he support transparency and accountability? Will he assure the House that if the Roads and Traffic Authority cannot tell when projects start, it does at least know when they finish?
The Hon. ERIC ROOZENDAAL: I thank the Hon. Greg Pearce for drawing those issues to my attention. I am well aware of those issues and will treat them accordingly.
