How much has Queensland got so far from the Northern Australia Infrastructure Facility?

 HOW MUCH HAS QUEENSLAND GOT SO FAR FROM THE NORTHERN AUSTRALIA INFRASTRUCTURE FACILITY?
 

The answer is zero. 

Last week in Senate Estimates it was revealed that the Northern Australia Infrastructure Facility still hasn’t delivered one cent to Queensland.

The NAIF was announced by the LNP four years ago. Four years later only $15 million has gone out the door – none of it to Queensland.

The NAIF has only provided funding for two projects – one in Western Australia and the other in the Northern Territory.

This is ridiculous. No wonder the people of Central and North Queensland are angry with this out of touch LNP Government.

It’s time the Abbott Turnbull Morrison Government pulled their finger out and started delivering on their $5 billion promise.
