A bit late to the party, the Canberra Liberals are kicking the can along the road following yesterday’s frankly shocking admissions that the Chief Minister had neglected to mention before that she’d holidayed in the South of France with Kate Jackson (the only named member of what the Auditor-General suspects was a group who doctored 11,700 records to improve the perceived performance of the Canberra Hospital Emergency Department).
The Liberals want to know a whole lot more about who said what to whom:
“Katy Gallagher initially took a week to disclose a conflict of interest claiming a mere personal relationship with a family member. Now it has been revealed that she herself has a personal relationship with the executive and is being deceptive about what she has told the Auditor General,” Mr Hanson said.
“The Canberra Liberals are demanding that Katy Gallagher now be finally open and accountable with Canberrans and provide full disclosure of all documents relating to this deception,” ACT Opposition Leader Zed Seselja said.
“This includes a transcript of the information given to the Auditor General, legal advice received from the Solicitor General and any other advice Katy Gallagher received on this issue.
“A failure to disclose this information will just add another layer of deception to a tangled web of misleads, half truths and omissions stated by Katy Gallagher on this issue,” Mr Seselja concluded.
Myself I’d love to know just how many ACT Health execs are holidaying in the South of France on any given summer.
