SUBJECTS: MALCOLM TURNBULL’S EVASIONS ON NAVAL SHIPBUILDING; SENATE INQUIRY INTO THE FUTURE OF THE INDUSTRY

SENATOR KIM CARR: I’m chairing this Senate inquiry into Australia’s Naval shipbuilding. There are increasing numbers of companies and increasing numbers of Australians who are very concerned that there is no certainty for them about their place in what is a $90 billion program for the building of 54 ships in this country over the next forty years. This inquiry is about trying to evaluate those claims and trying to get the government to come clean on its commitments as to how much of that work will be done in Australia.

SANDY ALOISI: A political brawl is unfolding about whether to pay National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) using a $3.4 billion university infrastructure fund.  The Government last year announced that it would be transferring money from the Education Investment Fund (EIF) to mostly cover a $3.7 billion hole in funding for the NDIS. Now it’s been revealed legislation will be needed to transfer the funding, but it will have to pass a hostile Senate.  The Shadow Science and Research Minister is Kim Carr and he joins us now. Mr Carr good morning to you.

SUBJECTS: government procurement rules.

MICHAEL BRISSENDEN:  South Australian Senator Nick Xenophon has won a significant concession from the government to help protect local industry from foreign completion. For years he and the Finance Minister have clashed over how the Government spends its $60 billion annual procurement bill.
