Transport Minister Stephen Mullighan has again failed to disclose just how much money the ‘Public Transport Cost Recovery Measure’, or ‘Fun Tax’, will add to the price of a footy ticket for Adelaide and Port Adelaide supporters.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

“The release of the AFL draw was an opportunity for the Minister for Transport to detail exactly how much Crows and Power fans are going to be taxed to help pay for public transport services to Adelaide Oval.” Shadow Minister for Transport Corey Wingard said.

“At the last election Labor promised free public transport to major events at Adelaide Oval.”

“What they did not tell us was that South Australians would end up having to pay for this ‘free transport’ through a tax on tickets.” Mr. Wingard said.

“The Fun Tax will be passed on to all event attendees, regardless of whether or not they used public transport.”

“Today in Parliamentary Question time Minister Mullighan was unable to answer my questions, and explain why the Weatherill Labor Government insists on hitting already struggling South Australians with yet another tax.”

“South Australians deserve a more financially responsible and transparent government.” Mr. Wingard said.
