Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull has offered to give Western Australia a $A187 million top-up goods and services tax payment. The money is to be spent on expanding or refurbishing three hospitals, while Turnbull is also expected to announce funding for extra train stations and a road bypass in outer Perth suburbs. The Liberal Party currently holds 11 of the 16 federal seats in WA, but five are held with a margin of less than seven per cent.
