DAVID JULL MEMBER FOR FADDEN

26 September 1997

STATEMENT BY THE HON DAVID JULL MP MEMBER FOR FADDEN

In light o f today's events, I wish to state that any actions of mine of the past few days have not been undertaken with any sense o f vindictiveness.

Some press reports suggesting this have disturbed me.

At all times I have acted in accordance with the advice provided to me.

Under the Westminster Convention, the Minister is ultimately responsible for his actions. I did not tell the Prime Minister personally o f Mr Sharp’s repayment.

I accepted the responsibility for that action and tended my resignation.

As both Mr John Sutherland and I are to be subjected to the Department of Audit Examination - neither of us will be making any further statement
