STATEMENT: NT still $500 million short despite GST guarantee

The Northern Territory is still $500 million out of pocket every year despite the Federal Governments proposed new legislation on GST distribution.

This legislation protects us from future cuts, but does nothing to restore the $500 million less GST revenue we have lost from Canberra.

Thats $500 million less for police, teachers and nurses and this continues to hurt us.

The Territory Labor Government will continue to fight for every GST cent Territorians deserve the same level of services as other Australians.

The CLP, Terry Mills and Robyn Lambley need to stand with us and fight for the Territory in getting our fair share of GST funding.
