Keep the pressure on

When I wrote my post on the Commission of Inquiry report, it was to highlight the work that still needed to be done to improve oversight of and within Government.

Later the Premier said a committee would be formed to look at the Commission’s report. A step in the right direction, but still death by a thousand cuts.

Since then, as far as I can see, silence. The House is in recess so there is a reasonable reason for not progressing with the formation of a committee.

Doing something like this via committee is a cop out. It just (unnecessarily) slows the process, allowing it to slowly drift out of the limelight as it gets overtaken by other issues.

So, if we have to go the committee way, it must not be allowed to slip and I would call on everyone to ensure pressure is put on Government to ensure that the CoI findings are not allowed to gather dust on a shelf somewhere.

The issue of oversight of and within Government is of paramount importance. The reason the CoI was formed in the first place, shows that importance..

If we have to go the committee way, there must be a strict timeline for its report which must be made public and there has to be a plan of action with a detailed timeline, as well as the public reporting of projects/initiatives completed.

Government must be held accountable and not to follow through on the CoI report will be an abdication of its duty.
