Mr. Speaker, Mr. Kilrea's affidavit is at odds with what the environment minister told police. The minister said that Kilrea asked but Kilrea said that he did not raise the appointment directly with the minister because O'Brien told him not to. Mr. Kilrea swore this in his affidavit and took a polygraph test which he passed with flying colours.
My question is simple. Did the Minister of the Environment mislead the police and, if so, why?
