Revelations the taxpayer picked up a hefty tab for repairs to model sheep have been trumped by news of the overall bill for last year’s MoBIE Christmas function, says Labour’s Economic Development spokesperson David Clark.
“Minister Joyce oversees a department that allocated $20,000 for a Christmas party while MoBIE proves incapable of sticking to its gold-plated budget.
“Taxpayer fleecing has been taken to a whole new level. The sheep repairs were just the beginning. We now know MoBIE blew the budget and spent a whopping $25,741 on their Christmas party.
“Minister Joyce’s department spent $2800 on props and repairs alone while MoBIE has morphed from white elephant to black sheep.
