Cassy O’Connor MP | Greens’ Leader

It is well past time the Premier listened to, and acted on, the Commission’s advice for strengthening transparency, integrity and public confidence in government and Parliamentarians.

Rockliff Fails to Explain $188K Payment to TasTAFE CEO

Andrea Dawkins MP | Greens' Education spokesperson

The TasTAFE Annual Report was belatedly released today, outside the statutory time frame and at the end of the sitting week, revealing TasTAFE's former CEO received a $188 000 separation payment despite being the subject of a damning Integrity Commission investigation initiated by the Greens.

Education Minister, Jeremy Rockliff, today clung to Mr Conway’s contract but refused to table it and could not coherently explain the $188,000 payment.

Without going to the specifics of the TasTafe investigation, including the crime of misconduct in public office in the Criminal Code would bring Tasmania in line with other States.
