Macklin extends town camps deadline

Koori Mail

4 Jun 09: “The Federal Government has had to delay its plan to compulsorily acquire Aboriginal town camps in Alice Springs. The Indigenous Affairs Minister, Jenny Macklin, announced she would take control of the camps on July 6 if the Tangentyere Council, which currently manages the camps, did not agree to a 40-year lease deal worth $100 million. Ms Macklin has extended the deadline for written submissions on the proposal to July 28 after receiving legal advice.”
