Breaking News: Labour Has Stated It Intends To Repay Spending - Govt Proposes Validating Legisation

Speaker Margaret Wilson: Briefly, the Auditor-General found breaches in the allocation to seven of the eight parliamentary parties. His finding was based on an interpretation of what activities fell within the definition of “parliamentary purposes”. A legal opinion from Crown Law, which found that a “parliamentary purpose” is negated if one of the purposes of the communication is to invite support for party policies, supported his interpretation. This interpretation was not conveyed to the parties before the 2005 election. See... Speaker responds to Auditor-General
