Ministers selling access should be made illegal

The acting Integrity Commissioner, Dr David Solomon, has criticised the practice of Ministers charging for access. ‘Those who abandon their public trust obligations by selling access to their ministerial offices are helping to destroy the efforts that have been made by governments and most politicians to try to demonstrate to the public their desire to promote ethical conduct by MPs and the steps they have taken to establish mechanisms that try to ensure that they act with integrity.’
