Funding for Remote Indigenous Housing Unclear
The war of words on the funding of remote housing between the Commonwealth and WA governments continued this week in the media and at a major meeting at Yule River in the Pilbara. ‘The West’ reported that:
“Federal Indigenous Affairs Minister Nigel Scullion faced an at-times heated crowd at the Yule River bush meeting in the Pilbara yesterday, where funding for remote housing was a key talking point among traditional owners.”
To date, there is no indication that the governments are any closer to coming to an agreement on this important issue.
