Lower Taxes, Less Waste,
More Transparency

Championing Value For Money From Every Tax Dollar

Petition: Steven Joyce should pay back the fare

Economic Development Minister Steven Joyce hired a cab in Sydney and kept the meter going all day. The cost to taxpayers? $1,248. It would have been cheaper to fly a staff member over and drive a rental car all day.

We're calling on Steven Joyce to pay the fare back. Sign below to stand up to abuse of taxpayer perks.

I wouldn't spend $1,248 for a taxi, so why should I have to pay for Mr Joyce's? He should pay the money back.
