Member for Mallee Dr Anne Webster says the Albanese Government has yet again ignored the Mallee in last night’s Federal Budget, delaying local infrastructure projects, failing to provide new money for Mallee programs and refusing to fix Labor’s self-made cost-of-living crisis.

“The Prime Minister said when he was elected two years ago, ‘no one would be held back, no one would be left behind’, but that’s only if you live in a capital city and not in Mallee,” Dr Webster said. 

“I have pored through the budget and found no references to any projects or benefits for Mallee, Wimmera, Sunraysia or the Grampians.”
