HAMILTON town clerk, Mr. Tim Neville, says up to $200,000 in subsidy help towards welfare services is awaiting the South-West Region’s 17 municipalities. Mr. Neville says the money is available under the Federal Government’s Australian Assistance plan. He has successfully urged Hamilton City Council to support a seminar in Warrnambool on May 8 to form a region under the plan. He has told council: “A Labor Government tends to work towards a socialist state and this is one of its methods of doing it. “Assistance offered under the plan covers items that Hamilton City Council is involved with – and items that council in the past hasn’t had the finance to be involved with.” Mr. Neville said the Federal Government had issued publications which showed the aims of the plan.
