Lobbyists are still running amok in the Northern Territory. The Northern Territory does not have the capacity to discover what lobbyists are giving those in power or their influencers.
Benefits do not have to received directly. Family members can be the recipient or items can be “loaned”. What about renovations to Granny’s house interstate funded by a friendly local contractor? Or a nice load of building supplies dropped at a block land at Humpty Doo? Who would know?
The CLP and Labor Party do not appear at all interested in controlling lobbyists. This inaction can only come from a vested interest in receiving benefits from lobbyists.
