A GOOD per­cent­age of the elec­torate is well aware of all the prom­ises made by the La­bor Party on schools, rail links to Mor­ley and re­solv­ing level cross­ing choke points.

All of these re­quire cost­ings put be­fore the Trea­sury.

We know that in the last weeks of the Fed­eral Elec­tion the La­bor Party mounted a huge scare cam­paign on Medi­care aimed at older cit­i­zens to de­ter them from vot­ing Lib­eral. The ex­ten­sion of the Thorn­lie line could have been done un­der the pre­vi­ous La­bor State Gov­ern­ment, but no. This is now a live is­sue and who­ever wins power should pro­ceed with project.

The Gate­way project for the Tonkin has been a great Lib­eral suc­cess and re­moved con­ges­tion, sped up travel times and saved freight com­pa­nies thou­sands of dol­lars.

There­fore the Roe ex­ten­sion to Fremantle and up­grades in the Port's in­fra­struc­ture should pro­ceed and will help Perth grow. The di­nosaurs of the Mar­itime Work­ers Union must see this.

You have only to look at the de­struc­tion of Lon­don Docks in the 1960s due to union leader Jack Dash and strikes.

WA can­not af­ford to have the La­bor Party and Greens spend, spend and bor­row in our name. MARTIN SMITH, Thorn­lie.
