Mr TREVOR (8:05 PM) —Minister, can you please give to me and this House one billion reasons why the Nationals cannot add up? As part of that question, Minister, can the Nationals properly read the budget papers, have they embarrassed themselves by misreading the forward estimates and claiming $1 billion has been cut from the portfolio budget and should they go back and read the budget papers again and play a constructive role in discussing how to help cushion rural and regional Australia from the global recession? So I again ask you, Minister, could you please give to me and this House one billion reasons why the Nationals cannot add up?
