Mr. Speaker, the government has a Venetian blind trust, which a minister can open or shut, so long as the ethics counsellor agrees. The guidelines say a minister can go back to his business “only in exceptional circumstances where an extraordinary corporate event is likely to materially affect the assets”.
I have two questions for the Prime Minister. How many times did the former minister of finance claim that exceptional circumstances warranted a meeting with his private shipping line? How did the contract with the Indonesian company constitute an extraordinary corporate event?
