Minister for Energy and Emissions Reduction


Ms BUTLER (Griffith) (14:43): My question is to the Minister for Energy and Emissions Reduction. I refer the minister to his claim that he did not ask for a compliance officer from the Department of the Environment and Energy to be present at his grasslands meeting and his confirmation that a compliance officer was there. If it wasn't his idea to have a compliance officer there, whose was it? Did the Treasurer ever advise the minister that the compliance officer was present at the request of the Treasurer?


Mr TAYLOR (HumeMinister for Energy and Emissions Reduction) (14:43): The department determines who comes to these meetings. Let me be very clear: I didn't ask for or, indeed, even know that a compliance officer was present at the meeting.
