During Question Time today, the Treasurer conceded the cost benefit analysis on the relocation of the Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Medicines Authority (APVMA) cost the taxpayer $272,000.
It is no wonder Barnaby Joyce said he didnt know how much the cost benefit analysis cost when pressed on ABCs Insiders.
Yesterday Barnaby Joyce also reaffirmed his refusal to release the cost benefit analysis.
Yet today, Scott Morrison said its a matter for Cabinet.
It is clear the forced relocation of the APVMA from Canberra to Barnaby Joyces electorate is creating a split in the Cabinet.
There is no doubt senior Ministers are shocked by the stupidity of Barnaby Joyces pork barrelling exercise.
It is past time the Prime Minister showed some leadership by standing up to Barnaby Joyce and at the very least, forcing him to release the cost benefit analysis.
