Pitt has case to answer: Frecklington

January 05, 2018

Queensland opposition leader Deb Frecklington wants to refer Curtis Pitt to the Ethics Committee.

Queensland Opposition Leader Deb Frecklington will refer former treasurer Curtis Pitt to the parliament's Ethics Committee over claims he misled the chamber about his role in a Queensland Rail pay deal.

Ms Frecklington said on Friday she would write to outgoing speaker Peter Wellington recommending he make the referral, after documents showed Mr Pitt had signed a draft direction months before he claimed in parliament he had not done so.

She said Mr Pitt, who is expected to appointed as speaker next month, had a "clear case to answer".
