My adjournment matter this evening is for the Treasurer. It relates to a number of questions I have raised in the house but to which I have received what I believe to be inadequate answers.
The first question that I put to the Treasurer via the Special Minister of State was in relation to the appointment of Ms Cassandra Kelly to a Treasury Corporation Victoria (TCV) position. She was appointed by the Treasurer in August 2015 and a few months later moved to New York, as has been reported. She now flies to attend TCV meetings on a fairly regular basis. When I asked my initial questions in relation to the cost to the Victorian taxpayer of Ms Kelly's contribution to those meetings through flights, accommodation and other expenses I received an answer from the Treasurer via the Special Minister of State. That took a month to get. Of course I have asked further questions in relation to that issue and I have still not had a satisfactory response from the Treasurer.
I believe that he does know what the cost to the taxpayer is for allowing Ms Kelly to attend these meetings on a regular basis. I do not want any more delays, I do not want any more obfuscation, I just want to know what the cost is for Ms Kelly's participation in all of the meetings that she has attended. The action I seek from the Treasurer is that he provide an undertaking that he will provide that cost as soon as possible.
