Hunter MP Michael Johnsen's claims of a merger or closure of Hunter Police LAC were denied by the Police Minister during Budget Estimates hearings on Thursday.
Nationals MP Rick Colless announced the $500 million Growing Local Economies Fund, but said he's going to travel around rural New South Wales to tell them why Orange deserves the money.
Another National Party Member of Parliament who cares more about themselves than their electorate: Adrian Piccoli is about to announce his retirement as he secures a cushy job in Sydney.
