Gladys Berejiklian statement

The Premier

Media statement from Premier Gladys Berejiklian.

I was made aware through media reports today that an MP is under investigation by police.

I have subsequently received advice from Minister Gareth Ward of his decision to step aside as Minister and sit on the cross bench while there is speculation about his future.

I support his decision.

The Attorney General will act in Mr Ward’s portfolio responsibilities.
