PRESS RELEASE

COUNTRY PEOPLE GET THE WORST OF MINI BUDGET - AGAIN - TUCKEY.

The proposed increase in charges and reduction of Government assistance announced in the Mini Budget will hit Country people the hardest said the Federal Member for O'Connor Wilson Tuckey today.

Some glaring examples are:- .

*The cut in fuel freight subsidies of $116m lifting country fuel prices by up to 4 cents.per litre.

*The 50% increase in the Isolated Patients Travel and Accomodation Assistance Scheme from $20 to $30.

*Reductions in payments to Local Government of $60m.

*Reductions to spending on Road programmes of $60m.

These further impositions on Rural people by the Federal Government clearly show that they are placing an unfair burden on the Rural sector resulting from their "Big Spending" attitude to Government.
