Question to PM on Hobart City Deal

The Independent Member for Denison, Andrew Wilkie, will ask the Prime Minister the following in Question Time today. Please check against delivery.

“Prime Minister yesterday you spoke glowingly of the City Deals being struck around the country.

 

“But I understand the Hobart City Deal, as it currently stands, won’t include any funding other than for the Bridgewater Bridge, which has already been announced, and doesn’t include light rail.

 

“Prime Minister City Deals are good in principle, but just thinly disguised election pork barrelling if the Commonwealth contribution only flows to seats you want to win or hold.

 

“So, can you confirm the Hobart City Deal will be finalised before the election? Will it include funding other than that for the Bridgewater Bridge? And will it include a commitment to light rail?”

 

WHEN: Approximately 2:15pm TODAY 27 November

WHERE: House of Representatives (watch live at https://www.aph.gov.au/News_and_Events/Watch_Parliament)
