Give $84 million back to the ABC

3 Jun 2020

Centre Alliance is calling on the Federal Government to use the upcoming budget to reverse the $84 million in paused indexation funding for the Australian Broadcasting Corporation.

The call comes as the ABC releases its five-year strategic plan and announces up to 250 job losses, reduced independent production, program cuts and other savings to cover the budget hole.

"Centre Alliance takes the position that the Federal Government needs to adequately resource the ABC and this begins by restoring the $84 million in indexation cut from the ABC budget over the next three years," said Communications Spokesperson Senator Stirling Griff.
