The Transport Minister, David Campbell, survived a no-confidence motion in the NSW Parliament yesterday after the government used its numbers in the lower house to vote down the motion, put by the Nationals leader, Andrew Stoner. Mr Stoner had flagged his intention to put the motion today, citing the gridlock caused by the F3 freeway crash and other alleged bungles in Mr Campbell’s portfolio, such the scrapped CBD Metro project. But the government brought forward the debate to yesterday afternoon. Mr Stoner said this was a tactic aimed at burying the vote beneath news of the hospital reform negotiations in Canberra and the killing of Carl Williams in prison.
