MINISTERS AND MINISTERIAL OFFICES —
UNAUTHORISED CREDIT CARD USE
1536. Hon PETER COLLIER to
the Leader of the House representing the Premier:
I refer to ''Treasurer's
Instruction 321 — Credit Cards — Authorised Use''.
(1) Has there
been any unauthorised use of credit cards by any minister or member of a minister's
office in the past three months?
(2) If yes to (1), what was the
unauthorised purchase and what was the value of the purchase?
(3) If yes to (1), to which
ministerial offices was the credit card or cards allocated?
I thank the honourable member for
some notice of the question.
(2) Regarding the
nature of purchase, there are four—taxi fares, meal, chemist and meal,
and meals. The amounts were $11.44 for taxi fares, $20.50 for meals, $35.29 for
chemist and meal and $578.80 for meals. The ministerial offices—this is
presented in a table—are Murray, MacTiernan, Wyatt and Quigley. All
unauthorised expenditure has been repaid to the department.
(3) Refer to part (2) above.
