The Greens’ Deb Foskey is asking some hard questions about the way $300,000 was given to Summernats (and, we might add, announced in the holiday hiatus) with no obligations as to how the money had to be spent.
“I donâ€™t know why exactly Summernats asked for the money it got from the ACT Government â€“ but it seems that the Government didnâ€™t care how that money was spentâ€ Dr Foskey said today.
â€œNor do I know what Tharwa School could have done with $300,000, although I imagine it might have bought them a couple more years”
She goes on to ask how many other large businesses have been slipped a bung of our money in the last year?
I’d like to know how many of those (if there are any) made hefty grants to the ALP or employed unusual numbers of party members in that time.
