BUDGET FAILS TO HELP TOP END: NT GOVT
May 10, 2017
Luke Gosling joined fellow federal Labor MP Warren Snowdon and Senator Malarndirri McCarthy to slam a $16 million decrease in National Partnership for Remote Housing funding to the NT.
"There are no real funding commitments in this budget to glose the gap of indigenous disadvantage. This is a disgrace," they said.
The NT will receive some of the $55.7 million the commonwealth has committed over five years to help improve the job prospects for indigenous Australians across the country.
