"We cannot have open slather in these communities"

Marion Scrymgour

ALP candidate for Lingiari Marion Scrymgour is asking for the Govenrment to step in and deal with the unrest in Wadeye immediately, calling it a humantarian crisis. She believes that if the 400 people that have been displaced are not dealt with, they will move into Darwin.

Marion also will be advocating for the NT Government to rethink the plans to ease alcohol restrictions in remote communities. She says having licensed venues isn't the answer, as we're seeing too much disfunction and unrest already.
