A WA parliamentary committee into cannabis and hemp use has overhauled how MPs declare any conflicts of interest after its chair Brian Walker got into very hot water and had to resign from the board of ASX-listed medicinal cannabis company Creso after only 4 days in the position.
As far as we can find there’s no reference to either the prior rules or the updated rules on the relevant WA Parliament page
There’s no statement from Walker on his parliamentary page
And although he seemed quite happy to post his Creso appointment to his FB page (see below) it is quite disappointing that there’s no statement on his facebook about the events.
It needn’t be much, but for clarity, it is, we think it incumbent upon him to make a short statement about the events of the past few days.
Instead , all we see is a distraction like this posted in the last 24 hours
It was the same story at his Linked In https://www.linkedin.com/in/brianwalkermlc/?locale=ar_AE
And Twitter too. https://twitter.com/brianwalkermlc
Not a whisper
All rather disappointing, never the less expected in the world of politics.
The West Australian has the full story (paywall)
