Frackmail? $260 million NT deal rushed as fracking ban overturned
Scott Morrison rushed through a $260 million payment to the Northern Territory in a matter of days at the same time the NT Government overturned the moratorium on gas fracking.
Morrison committed to the funding just three days after the fracking decision, in a letter of offer to the NT that also refers to that decision.
The Federal Government holds many documents referring to both fracking and federal funding to NT, but refuses to release them under FOI, because their decisions or deliberations are not already disclosed.
