Hon KEN TRAVERS: […] However, what does this budget show? It does show something. It shows that the money that the government had added for the upgrade of South Western Highway, as a replacement for the Greenbushes promise, has been pushed out to the never–never. The $25 million—ping, ping! Gone! So the government broke the promise, and it then broke the promise again! What is a double broken promise?

Hon Michael Mischin: Can you explain that for Hansard?

Hon KEN TRAVERS: Which bit? The ping, ping? Off into the never–never!

Hon Robyn McSweeney: It should be whinge, whinge!

Hon KEN TRAVERS: Hon Robyn McSweeney can call it whingeing. I am calling it holding the government to account.
