Todd Muller - Statement On Hamish Walker

Published: Tue 7 Jul 2020 05:29 PM
Hamish Walker has informed me that he received and then disclosed health information regarding active Covid-19 cases to members of the media.
I have asked Hamish to acknowledge this to Michael Heron QC and cooperate fully with his inquiry into how the information made it into the public domain.
I have expressed to Hamish my view that forwarding on this information was an error of judgement.
While I wait for the result of the inquiry I have transferred his Forestry, Land Information and Associate Tourism portfolio responsibilities to Ian McKelvie.
Given this matter is the subject of an inquiry I will not be making any further public comment.
