The ABC reports that the Liberals Zed Seselja is in some hot water after a new staff member used a Legislative Assembly photocopier to print his flyers.
“It was a new staff member and they printed something in error. The material wasn’t used,” he said.
“I understand it was a few dollars worth of material and it’s an error that I’ve acknowledged. It was an error that shouldn’t have happened and I’ve put in place steps to ensure that this sort of thing doesn’t happen again.”
Chief Minister Katy Gallagher says she accepts the explanation.
Surely the correct procedure is to use a printing allowance to overpay a printer who will reciprocate with gifts at a later stage?
