Diesel generators secret evidence should be made public

The State Liberals are demanding the Weatherill Labor Government releases secret evidence regarding the diesel generators previously provided to Parliament’s Public Works Committee.

“The Weatherill Government must come clean with the people of South Australia on its dodgy diesel generator deal,” said Deputy State Liberal Leader Vickie Chapman.

“Today in Parliament I will move a motion for evidence regarding the State Government’s procurement of diesel generators, which was heard in camera by the Public Works Committee on 10 August 2017, to be made public.

“If the Weatherill Government truly believes their diesel generator deal isn’t dodgy, then they will back this motion and reveal how much these generators have cost.

“If they refuse to be open and accountable by blocking this motion, it will give South Australians all the evidence they need about the secretive nature of this government.

“In the shadows of the state election, it is utterly scandalous that the Weatherill Government is refusing to be upfront with South Australians about the details of their diesel generator deal.”
