Questions without Notice: Additional Answers
Nation Building and Jobs Plan
Thank you, Mr Speaker. I was also asked a question about jobs and the economic stimulus package. I table an article from the Border Watch newspaper website entitled ‘$5 million boost to library and community centre’, which quotes the Mayor of Mount Gambier, Steve Perryman, saying:
This significant Federal Government Grant is a substantial contribution toward the realisation of the overall 2015 Vision for the Future and is gratefully acknowledged by Council and the community.
That was the Liberal candidate for the state election, Mr Perryman. I also table a list of the 134 projects which local government are receiving in the electorate of Barker, made up of a total of $4.65 million for community projects in Barker, clearly opposed by the member for Barker but supported by the community in Barker.
