Keep the Abbott Government to its promise not to cut ABC funding.
On election-eve, when questioned by a journalist, Tony Abbott ruled out cuts to the ABC: www.fabc.org.au/uploads/1/9/7/4/19742359/mr.pdf
The Government has established an Audit Commission to review government expenditure.
Make sure the Abbott Coalition Government keeps its promise not to cut ABC funding as the Howard Government did in 1996. Help to ensure as many people as possible know that Mr Abbott has promised not to cut the ABC’s funding, and that the Coalition knows that they know !
* Contact your local Coalition Member of Parliament, ensuring that s/he is aware that you live in their electorate. And/or contact a Coalition Senator in your state.
* Let them know the ABC is valuable to you, and that you are pleased the Coalition has promised that ABC funding will be maintained.
* Spread the word, and urge others to act too.
* Continue to remind the community and politicians of the Coalition’s pre-election promise at every opportunity.
