Shadow Minister for Agriculture, Peter Walsh

“The Melbourne Labor Government is looking for any excuse to pull funding from regional Victoria.
“If it weren't for our Regional Growth Fund many communities would have missed out on funding that added value to business and jobs investments, new kindergartens and child health centres, main street beautifications, sports and showground upgrades and local road projects.
“No one in regional and rural Victoria will be surprised to hear a Melbourne-based bureaucrat thinks investment outside of the city doesn’t deliver value for money.
“The Victorian Nationals will keep fighting tooth and nail to make sure regional and rural communities get their fair share.”
