METRODEBT - Taking from the regions to fund Perth projects
Nationals launch ‘Metrodebt’ campaign as Labor abandon the bush
The McGowan Government has abandoned the bush with confirmation it will rip apart the Royalties for Regions program to bankroll Perth election promises.
The Nationals WA launched its ‘Metrodebt’ campaign in September 2017, exposing the McGowan Government’s violation of Royalties for Regions to fund Labor election commitments and core regional services.
The campaign highlights how WA Labor is ransacking Royalties for Regions to pay for everyday government services while simultaneously increasing household fees and charges when an alternative revenue steam was on the table.
The Nationals policy to review State Agreements and update the rental fee paid by BHP and Rio Tinto is still available to the Premier.
Those two companies continue to pay a rental fee which has remained fixed at 25c per tonne of iron ore for more than 50 years.
