    Statement by Premier of Queensland Annastacia Palaszczuk

     

    This morning I advised the Parliament that it was my intention to study the Ethics Committee report in detail. 

    I said I would be meeting with the Minister about the findings of the report.

    I said I would listen very closely to the statement that the Minister would have to make. 

    I said this was a very serious matter and I would be speaking to the minister about it. 

    I have done all of those things. 

    Minister Miller has complied with the recommendation of the committee and made a statement in the House in accordance with that recommendation. 

    I have given close consideration to all of the circumstances involved. 

    In light of the seriousness of the committee’s findings, I have advised Minister Miller of my intention that she no longer continue in her present portfolio. 

    This intention will be given effect as part of the discussions I am having with all of my Ministers over the coming days.
