ADAM Giles has broken his promise to
provide full CLP Ministerial travel de-
tails by 27 July 2015.
The Government received questions around
Ministerial travel in advance of June Estimates
into travel with answers just delivered minus
major CLP international travel transactions.
Under the CLP public trust in Government
is at an all-time low including allegations of
corruption around travel being tested in Court.
No surprises Territory Labor want a clear point
of difference between ‘us and them,’ Labor and
With a defining plan Territory Labor will
restore accountability in Government; Labor is
committed to a continuous reforms policy titled
‘Restoring Integrity in Government’.
In relation to overseas travel in Government
Territory Labor will engage rigorous evalua-
tion from the public and private sectors about
how proposed travel will benefit the Northern
These assessments will be made available to
the public where prior to departure the Minis-
ter’s itinerary will be published.
On return a full Parliamentary report will be
provided by the Minister available to the public
including costs associated with the Minister’s
Labor’s overseas travel policy applies imme-
diately to Shadow Ministerial travel taken by
Labor Opposition Members.
Territory Labor will strive for a complete
level of openness and accountability because
Territorians want and deserve a Government
they can trust.
As a member of the Commonwealth Par-
liamentary Association (CPA) 2008-15 I was
selected to represent the Northern Territory
Legislative Assembly in the United Kingdom.
The Small Branches Workshop attracting
delegates from Commonwealth Parliaments
around the world Monday 17August to Friday
21 August 2015 conforms to CPA rules where
the Association pays travel costs equivalent to
the cheapest economy class return airfare by the
most direct route.
The CPA meets accommodation and meal costs
for the duration of the event at a nominated hotel
where Members undertake professional devel-
opment on how small jurisdictions use Com-
mittees of Parliament to scrutinise Government.
After serving as a Member of Parliament and
financial member of the Commonwealth Parlia-
mentary Association for seven years I nominated
for the first time indicative of the Sessional and
Select Committees of Parliament I represent.
I will also present at the workshop my experi-
ence on Northern Territory Legislative Assem-
bly Public Accounts, Subordinate Legislation
& Publications, Environment & Sustainable
Development, Legislative & Constitutional
Affairs, NT Energy Futures and Foetal Alcohol
Spectrum Disorder Committees.
Although travel, accommodation and meal
costs are met by the CPA under Territory Labor’s
overseas travel policy I will publish all details
of the trip prior to departure and report to parlia-
ment upon return.
Most importantly I look forward to sharing
my learnings and CPA networking with Barkly
constituents who elected me investing their
respected and honoured trust.

THE Barkly’s renal pa-
tients will have access
to community housing
thanks to a $10 million
boost from the Federal
The funds will be used to
develop accommodation in
Tennant Creek and Alice
Springs for end-stage renal
patients who need to relocate
to access treatment.
Federal Assistant Minister
for Health Fiona Nash said
the Australian Government
would work with the NT
Government to meet this criti-
“It’s not good enough that
Aboriginal people in remote
areas experience end-stage
renal disease at a rate 18 to 20
times higher than that of the
wider Australian population.
“We must support people
who already have renal dis-
ease but also focus on preven-
tion and effective manage-
ment of chronic illnesses,”
NT Minister for Housing,
Bess Price, welcomed the ad-
“This announcement is fan-
tastic news for Central Austra-
lian Indigenous renal patients
and their families as it will
ensure increased access to
housing and renal infrastruc-
ture closer to home,” she said.

TENNANT Creek Transport is set to launch a
new bus service to help people get to work
and training venues.
The early morning service, which begins on Monday,
will run between 7am - 9am, complementing the exist-
ing town bus service which will now run every hour
from 9am to 5pm with no break in the middle of the day.
Funded by a grant from Australian Ethical Investment,
the new service will include business and industrial
areas including Brown and Maloney streets, training
venues at Karen Sheldon Training, the Training Centre
in Staunton Street and Anyinginyi as well as Mulga,
Wuppa, Tingkarli, Karguru, Village and Marla Marla.
Tennant Creek Transport service planner David
Denmark says he is excited by the prospect of the new
“Getting the Town Bus service up and running has
been a tremendous challenge but to obtain support from
Australian Ethical Investment makes the establishment
of this important service so much easier,” he said.
“It would not have happened without them and we
look forward to further support from businesses in the
town who will benefit from workers being able to get
to their employment on time.”
