Parliamentary Questions

Question Without Notice No. 810 asked in the Legislative Council on 14 October 2021 by Hon Nick Goiran

Parliament: 41 Session: 1

Answered on

PROCEDURE AND PRIVILEGES COMMITTEE — REPORT ON A PERSON ADVERSELY REFERRED TOIN THE LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY — HON SIMON O'BRIEN

810. Hon NICK GOIRAN to the parliamentary secretary representing the Attorney General:

I refer to the parliamentary secretary's answer to my question without notice of 12 October 2021 in which he informed the house that the Attorney General had not heard the voice message referred to in the Corruption and Crime Commission report dated 26 November 2020, nor read a transcript of same.

(1) Has the Attorney General received any documents about the voice message, other than the CCC report and its erratum?

(2) If yes, will the parliamentary secretary table those documents?

Hon MATTHEW SWINBOURN replied:

I thank the member for some notice of the question.

(1)–(2) Yes. As page 7 of the first report of the Legislative Assembly's Procedure and Privileges Committee states —

The paragraph refers to a text message sent to Mr Phil Edman; the footnote refers to a telephone call.

The Office of the Attorney General sought clarification from the Corruption and Crime Commission on this inconsistency in its Report on electorate allowances and management of electorate offices, and received a response dated 3 December 2020, which I now table.
