State Liberal Leader Steven Marshall has demanded Premier Jay Weatherill come clean on whether the controversial Gillman land deal will proceed.
In April this year the Weatherill Labor Government paid $2.2 million to settle a High Court case regarding their Gillman land deal.
The settlement required developer Adelaide Capital Partners (ACP) to pay $45 million for the first stage of the Gillman development on or before 1 November 2016.
“Judgement day has arrived and it’s time for Mr Weatherill to come clean on whether his land deal is going ahead,” said Mr Marshall.
“Has ACP given the State Government the $45 million they committed to, or have taxpayers again been let down by Mr Weatherill’s dog of a deal?
“Three years ago Mr Weatherill said he would create 6,000 new jobs at Gillman and since that time not one single job has been created by his deal.
“How can South Australians trust Mr Weatherill to undertake a complex redevelopment of the current Royal Adelaide Hospital site when he couldn’t even sell a vacant piece of industrial land without an ICAC investigation and High Court action?
