Ministerial Code of Conduct

Escalation of Hidding Forrest Dispute the Fault of the Premier

Cassy O'Connor MP | Greens Leader

The Premier's woeful, stumbling performance in Question Time today points to a man for whom real leadership is an ambition beyond reach.

In trying to defend Minister Hidding over accusations of bullying and intimidation, the Premier made it clear he thinks doing nothing is an actual response.

It also became clear the Premier himself decided there had been no breach of the Ministerial Code of Conduct. 

Premier Failing to Act on Bullying Allegation

Cassy O'Connor MP | Greens Leader

The Premier has failed to acknowledge the seriousness of the situation Minister Hidding has created.

A female Member of Parliament has made a very serious allegation of bullying and intimidation against a male Minister in the Premier's Cabinet.

Ms Forrest's statement, on the Parliamentary record, must be taken seriously. How Ms Forrest felt as a result of her conversation with Minister Hidding is a very important consideration.

Liberals Bringing Themselves Undone Through Arrogance

Cassy O'Connor MP | Greens Leader 

It is a great privilege and responsibility to be appointed as a Minister of the Crown and the conduct of Ministers must reflect that a higher standard of behaviour is expected of them.

Regrettably, the Minister for Police, Transport and Infrastructure seems to have forgotten this. His conduct towards Ms Forrest reflects poorly on him and the Liberals in government.

He is clearly a breach of the Ministerial Code of Conduct and there are legitimate questions about a breach of the Criminal Code Act 1925.
