GOOD GRAZING – Sinckler: Sir Charles benefited from over $100m in contracts
DESPITE CONSTRUCTION magnate Sir Charles Williams’ complaints of never having had it so rough and of being hurt by an uneven business playing field, his company has benefited from more than $100 million in Government contracts in recent years.
Minister of Finance Chris Sinckler made this disclosure last night, as he urged the prominent businessman to give “the whole truth” when talking to the media.
“I see my friend, Sir Charles Williams, ’pon the TV the other night [saying] he’s never seen it [business] like this, he’s never seen it so bad and he can’t get no work,” Sinckler said.
“I say, without fear of contradiction, that C O Williams has gotten more contracts out of this Government in the last six years when we have been in Government than I can ever imagine – more than $100 million in work.”
