- 9:33:06 AM

 2SUSPENSION OF STANDING ORDERS MOVED

Ms C. F. King  moved—That so much of the standing orders be suspended as would prevent the Member for Ballarat from moving the following motion immediately—That the House:

(1)notes the Prime Minister:

(a)has taken his rorts to the streets, allocating more than 83 percent of the $3 billion Urban Congestion Fund to Liberal seats and marginal seats targeted by the Liberal Party;

(b)allocated funding to every Liberal seat that was marginal or under threat, as well as several marginal regional electorates held or targeted by the Liberal Party;

(c)did not allocate a cent to address congestion in 38 urban and regional city seats held by non-Government Members;

(d)incorrectly claimed the projects were election commitments, when the Urban Congestion Fund was established in the 2018 Budget;

(e)did not release any guidelines, did not formally call for expressions of interest, did not spend a cent from the Urban Congestion Fund in 2018-19, but did spend $17 million of government resources on pre-election advertisements telling us how good it was; and

(f)repeatedly sought to downplay and dismiss the serious allegation that his government continually spends taxpayer dollars for private political gain; and

(2)therefore calls on the Prime Minister to:

(a)correct his incorrect statement that Urban Congestion Fund projects are election commitments; and

(b)explain why his Government used taxpayer money as though it was its own personal marketing fund.

(a)Sport Australia has told the Parliament today that it provided a brief to Senator McKenzie on 3 April 2019 recommending 245 sports projects be approved;

(b)Senator McKenzie wrote to the Prime Minister on 10 April, the day before he called the election, attaching a spreadsheet with projects she intended to approve by electorate, including party details;

(c)on 11 April, the day the Prime Minister called the election, Senator McKenzie provided a brief to Sport Australia dated 4 April approving 228 projects for funding;

(d)73 per cent of these projects approved by Senator McKenzie were not recommended by Sport Australia;

(e)Sport Australia received the approved sports rorts list from Senator McKenzie after the election had been called and after caretaker conventions had commenced;

(f)the Government approved a $50,000 grant to the Sans Souci Football Club in the Prime Minister’s own electorate despite the fact the project had already been built, had already been officially opened and was therefore ineligible for funding; and

(g)the Prime Minister is the master chef of cooking the books;

(2)declares the Prime Minister has repeatedly misled the Parliament and he should have the integrity to correct the record as required by House practice; and

(3)calls on the Prime Minister to provide a full and frank account as to why he has used taxpayer money to advance his own Government’s partisan political interests.
