Re: Kevin Andrews MP and Clubs NSW

I have been contacted by Kevin Andrews’ office over my media release of today’s date headed: “Hokey-Pokie”.

Mr Andrews’ office advises me that to assert or imply, as I did, that Mr Andrews directly received a donation from Clubs NSW is not accurate.

The funds went to the Menzies 200 Club, a fund raising entity that exists to support Mr Andrews’ re-election campaign in the seat of Menzies.

I accept responsibility for the factual inaccuracy in the release and apologise to Mr Andrews for the error.

I still maintain the need for reform of campaign funding and disclosure laws.
