Katter announces Centrelink follow-up

31 March, 2006

Centrelink will be contacting people who have applied for the $10,000 grant for cyclone relief to assess their ability to claim a further $15,000, Member for Kennedy Bob Katter announced today.

Mr Katter said Centrelink would begin phoning recipients of the initial $10,000 to assess their eligibility for a further $15,000.

“We would urge these people to contact Centrelink and see whether they are eligible for the extra monies,” Mr Katter said.

He added that he could not name a single person he has interfaced with who hasn’t been helpful and co-operative in the wake of the devastation.

“People are working long hours and dealing with justifiable anger and are still getting the job done,” he said.
