BUDGET REPLY: BARNABY JOYCE QUESTIONS LABOR ON WHAT’S IN IT FOR THE NEW ENGLAND

Member for New England, Barnaby Joyce has weighed in on Labor’s budget reply speech.

He says the announcement was clouded by the ongoing citizenship fiasco, being quick to criticise the Opposition’s response.

“Because they don’t believe in the inland rail, we’d lose that. Because they don’t believe in APVMA being in Armidale, we’d lose that and they have no real vision about water infrastructure, we’d lose that.”
