NSW Labor’s budget reply speech cancelled
NSW Labor leader Chris Minns won’t be delivering his budget reply speech today amid Sydney’s growing COVID outbreak.
Mr Minns told Ben Fordham “all sides agree now’s not the time for politics”.
“We negotiated with the Premier’s Chief of Staff very early this morning that, ultimately, there are more important things on the agenda than a political statement on the budget.
“We both decided, the government and the Opposition, that now is not the right time to go ahead with the budget reply speech.”
