Liberal MLA Vicki Dunne says emails, released under freedom of information, show the Greens sought advise from the Human Rights Commission on questions to ask during parliamentary hearings.
“Non-executive members of the ACT Legislative Assembly or any other parliament do not have the right to go to public servants and say ‘here is my policy, cost it’,” she said.
Greens Leader Meredith Hunter says her party has done nothing wrong.
“I’m not aware of a request for costings on a policy, but it might have been within a general inquiry around where we’re putting forward this idea and have you got any thoughts around that,” she said.
