Is Eva Lawler Wasting Public Money And Cheating Aboriginal People In Central Australia?

The ABC reported that the NT Government is spending money intended for Aboriginals elsewhere. LINK


According to political economist and Alice Springs resident Rolf Gerritsen, that’s because a lot of this money is not actually making it to Central Australia.

In fact, he claims each year, a staggering $600 million from GST transfers to the NT Government fails to actually deal with Indigenous disadvantage.

“So, up to a third of the money that’s earned because of Aboriginal disadvantage is not actually spent on Aboriginal people,” he said.

“It’s spent on boat ramps, footy games, shade structures in Cavenagh Street. And it’s spent in Darwin on an over-senior and over-staffed public service.”
