The Government has confirmed special tax breaks in the Budget for the two major rugby organisations behind the Rugby World Cup.
The Government is spending more than a quarter of a million dollars funding a Rugby World Cup programme for young school children. The educational programme, which includes an activity book with learning activities based on the tournament and an accompanying teachers’ guide, will be delivered to all primary and intermediate schools in July.
Women’s refuges say some women fleeing from violence may no longer be able to get a safe bed after a surprise Government policy change chopped $700,000 off their funding.
That “stadium of four million”? I’d say it’s rapidly emptying out.
