Government says stadium costs haven’t blown out
WA Labor claims there will be a budget blowout for the new Perth Stadium, exceeding the original $1.2 billion budget.
Labor’s financial spokesperson Rita Saffioti says the public deserve to know, they’re paying extra for the facility.
But the State Government says there is no blowout and the claims are a result of the cost of the stadium and the transport infrastructure together.
Gary Adshead spoke with Rita Saffioti and Executive Director of Strategic Projects at the Department of Treasury Richard Mann.
