Deb Foskey has put out a triumphant media release on the discomfort of Andrew Barr in Estimates trying to explain the Government’s dragway policies. Or the lack thereof.
â€œToday in Estimates I asked the Minister Mr Barr for the Governmentâ€™s feasibility study on the economics of establishing a dragway on Majura Road. He was unable to provide any up-to-date data on its economic viability.â€
â€œMr Barr stated that the Govt would allocate no more than $8m to its establishment. He did not know whether this included the cost of purchasing the land.â€
Poor Andrew’s obviously been too busy answering our questions and closing schools to keep up to date with the dragway.
