Statement from Chief Minister

Statement from Chief Minister Michael Gunner following the Council of Australian Governments (COAG):


“I will always fight for Territory jobs, better health, remote housing and safer communities, and today I told the Prime Minister that he is failing the NT.

“The Australian Government has backed away from Senator Nigel Scullion’s promise to match our $1.1 billion funding for remote housing, offered less for health and allocated no extra money to implement the Royal Commission into the protection and detention of children.

“Territorians deserve much better.”
