Living veterans a priority

Australia's spending on 2015 Anzac commemorations has been criticised by Senator Jacqui Lambie, who says money is needed by living veterans.

 

Australia should have spent less on Anzac centenary commemorations and more on supporting its living veterans, Senator Jacqui Lambie says.

The Commonwealth is reported to have spent some $400 million marking 100 years since forces landed at Gallipoli and while Senator Lambie concedes it was an important event, she said the money could have been better directed.
