People in bush shake down those who help them: allegation

 

Aboriginal land councils are reportedly asking huge rents for land
needed to house public servants in the bush, and providing the very
services – education, health and police – the land councils are
clamoring for.

Independent MLA Gerry Wood says such land should be under a peppercorn rent.
The Alice Springs News Online has learned that on one community police
are short staffed, and another one needs more teacher housing, as
negotiations with the Central Land Council (CLC) are deadlocked over
rents to be charged. ERWIN CHLANDA reports. Pictured: Teacher housing in Hermannsburg (top). Chook farmer and Independent MLA Gerry Wood (right).
