Govt offers package to revive deaf centre

From: ABC Online, Australia - Jun 23, 2003

The board of the Cora Barclay Centre for deaf children will consider a revised South Australian rescue offer tonight.

Centre management met three Government ministers this morning, including the acting Premier and Treasurer, Kevin Foley.

Mr Foley says it will remain a condition that the operators sell their property at Gilberton, in return for future Government support.

Vice-president Peter Phillips says this morning's meeting came up with a number of measures that should ensure the centre's survival.

"We expect to have a letter in writing from them this afternoon which we can put to our board tonight," Mr Phillips said.
