Labor's attacks on Peter Costello are a disgrace and also represent a slight on David Gonski.
"Peter Costello is a great Australian who not only had the vision and foresight to set up the Future Fund, but also restored the resilience in our economy after inheriting a Labor train wreck,” Shadow Finance Minister Andrew Robb said.
"Stephen Conroy has again showed his true colours with his nonsensical attack on Mr Costello, while Penny Wong is responsible for yet another botched Labor process.
"Their attacks on Peter Costello are also an insult to respected David Gonski who in fact recommended Mr Costello for the job of chairman of the Future Fund as acknowledged by Penny Wong.
“It is clear that spiteful Labor politics is what stopped Peter Costello from being appointed to a role for which he is eminently qualified. When exposed the likes of Conroy revert to type and attack the man when they can’t defend the issue.
“Peter Costello is a man who walks tall on the world financial stage, not only is he a director of the Future Fund he is also a member of the independent advisory board to the World Bank in Washington,” Mr Robb said.
