Josh Frydenberg says Victorians get plenty of support in wake of criticism from Daniel Andrews
Federal Treasurer Josh Frydenberg says “he’s not going to take the bait” after he was criticised by Daniel Andrews for not offering more support to Victorians on Thursday.
But he did tell Tony Jones that Victorians get more support from the federal government than any other state.
“The facts are these Tony, the federal government is providing around twice what the state government is providing right now to Victorian households and businesses,” he said on 3AW Mornings.
“In New South Wales they chose to put construction in their business support payments that we went 50-50 with, In Victoria they took a decision not to put construction.
“But your listeners need to understand, on a per capita basis, we’re providing more support into the people of Victoria than any other state.”
