Federated Mountain Clubs Calls on Key to give $8 Million of Tourism’s $158 Million to DOC
Invercargill, 21 April 2013
Trampers and mountaineers call on Prime Minister John Key to reduce the money he has promised the Tourism sector to attract wealthy tourists to New Zealand from $158 million to $150 million. The difference should be spent on the Department of Conservation so that they don’t have to cut back their work in the coming financial year and lay off staff, says Federated Mountain Clubs President, Robin McNeill.
