The government will be opposing this motion. The government notes that the complaint, investigation and ruling all occurred under the previous government and were not disclosed. As the government has previously explained, it would be inappropriate for a report into a confidential workplace investigation to be tabled in the parliament. Even with redactions, there is a risk that the tabling of such a report would have implications for the privacy of the subject, complainant and witnesses and could act as a deterrent for further complaints.
