Auditor-General to probe East-West fiasco

Anthony Albanese: Auditor-General to probe East-West fiasco 12 February 2015

The inquiry will examine what steps the Abbott Government took to protect the public interest before committing the funding – a decision that defied Mr Abbott’s election promise not to fund infrastructure projects worth more than $100 million without proper cost-benefit analysis.
