Labor calls on Will Hodgman to investigate Hickey leak

  • Hickey’s submission for pay rise was leaked
  • Investigation needed to ensure security of information provided to the TIC
  • Hickey-leak fiasco hurting Government’s reputation
  • Will
    Hodgman must ask Tasmania Police to investigate the alleged leak of the Liberal
    Member for Clark, Sue Hickey’s submission to the Tasmanian Industrial
    Commission.

    Ms
    Hickey has claimed the submission, which called for her to receive a massive
    pay rise, was leaked to cause her damage.

    Shadow
    Attorney General Ella Haddad said it was vital to get to the bottom of this
    matter to ensure the integrity of the TIC as well as relevant offices.

    “Allegations
    of leaks need to be taken very seriously,” Ms Haddad said.

    “Tasmanians
    need to have full faith that a private submission provided to a statutory
    government agency remains private.

    “The
    Attorney General, Elise Archer today denied her office was involved in the
    leak.

    “This
    leak has severely impacted on the reputation of Sue Hickey, as well as Will
    Hodgman.

    “It is now up to Will Hodgman to show some leadership by getting to the bottom of this important matter.”
