Australia politics live news: Morrison heads to G20 in Rome before climate summit; 1,923 Covid cases and 25 deaths in Victoria

Let me give you this commitment, Laura. Everything is laid transparent and bare when it comes to all of the budget updates we have. Ultimately, one of the laws in Australia is that there is a budget update independently given by the Treasury and the finance departments during the election campaign so that there are no secrets about decisions that government have made.

So we will absolutely make sure that where we have policy commitments in relation to investment in regional Australia, we make those clear pre-election. Where the government is getting on and delivering the inland rail that has been talked about for decades and it’s now under construction, being built, part of a key investment in regional Australia.

We have seen significant investment in growth in terms of a number of regional ports and centres around the country. And of course, we want to make sure that our manufacturing strategy, our Ag 2030 strategy, our digital economy strategy all reach into regional Australia. And it should be of no surprise to anyone that there’s broad agreement across the Liberal and National parties for continued investment and support for regional Australia.
