NSW Parliament - resignation of a member of Parliament and his appointment to a public sector position

The ICAC investigated matters in relation to the resignation of a member of the NSW Parliament, and his subsequent appointment to a position in the NSW Senior Executive Service.

In its first report on this investigation, made public in June 1992, the ICAC made findings of corrupt conduct in relation to the then Premier of NSW and the then Minister for the Environment, and stated its opinion that consideration should not be given to the prosecution of or the taking of disciplinary action against any person, nor to the dismissal of any public official.

The ICAC's findings that the then Premier of NSW and the then Minister for the Environment, had engaged in corrupt conduct within the meaning of the ICAC Act, were the subject of litigation in the NSW Court of Appeal. The Court declared that the findings were a nullity. Accordingly, the ICAC produced a second report, made public in September 1992, to correct the record, state the effect of the Court of Appeal decision and to raise issues concerning the ICAC Act and desirable changes to it.
