On 24 October last year, Angus Taylor told Parliament that a document he used with fake numbers was drawn from the City of Sydney website.
But NSW Police found no evidence the Minister’s office downloaded the 2017-18 Annual Report from the City of Sydney’s website.
Today when asked in Question Time if the Minister stands by his statement he said “the document was accessed from the City of Sydney website.”
Also last year, Angus Taylor assured Parliament he would fully cooperate with the NSW Police Strike Force Garrad investigation into his use of a fake document.
But the NSW Police gave evidence stating the Minister forwarded all interview requests to his solicitor.
Today when asked in Question Time why he promised the House he would cooperate with the investigation but then refused to be interviewed by NSW Police Mr Taylor said he“didn’t refuse an interview with the New South Wales Police.”
At a time when trust in Government is more important than ever Australians deserve some straight answers from Angus Taylor.
If he won’t give them the Prime Minister needs to stand him aside.
