John Barilaro, Don Harwin overruled expert advice on regional arts funding, documents reveal.
Two senior NSW Government ministers ignored expert advice and approved unworthy projects in Coalition-held seats for part of a $100 million regional art fund ahead of the state election.
Two of the projects were in Mr Barilaro’s Monaro electorate,
including a $999,000 renovation of the Queanbeyan’s Bicentennial Hall
— a venue licensed for functions.
