Mr TEHAN (Wannon) (11:59): My questions go to RDA funding. Road funding is a key priority in my electorate of Wannon. Last time, in the first round, there was some conjecture as to whether road funding could be applied for or not. I would like the minister to clear up for us once and for all whether road funding can be a priority or not. For my second question I would like the minister to explain how much emphasis goes on the RDA committee's ranking of projects. Once again, last time there was a lot of conjecture because some of the projects which had been ranked higher were not funded, yet some of those which had not been ranked higher were accepted as projects. I was just wondering whether the minister could explain how that works. My third question to the minister is: how is the minister ensuring that projects are determined on a regional needs basis rather than on a political basis?
