"The Ministers Front up" Meeting was a Farce

Published: Wed 13 Oct 1999 12:56 AM
The meeting entry free of charge failed to deliver on the programme advertised. The heading "The Ministers front up" The News paper said… here the facts…. put the questions…. Discuss the issues.
But when Mrs Baker stood up to put the questions about the issue of government Ministers dodging complaints about the malpractice’s in the Banking Industry and the industries failure to honor the Government agreements the four Ministers didn’t want to front up at all!
There was obvious displeasure voiced by Katherine O’Regan who actually told Mrs Baker to be seated.
The organisation that Mrs Baker represents has held several meetings with Mrs O’Regan, as she was a Minister involved in the deregulation process.
Mrs O’Regan has shared valuable knowledge of the negotiations Government had with the Banking Industry.
We believe this is bizarre, as Katherine O’Regan even spoke with some authority and support about this matter in the house on 31 March this year.
So what is Katherine O’Regan trying to hide now? Given her previous we can’t fathom!
Why is the Government scared to address this shocking corruption of the system? This organisation only wants to present the absolute proof we have of problems to them.
As well as individual breaches of bankers promise the banking Ombudsman scheme is being abused and the over 65 age group are being ripped off and nobody wants to know about it.
