PREMIER REFUSES FOR SECOND TIME TO DETAIL MEETING WITH BLUESCOPE STEEL

MEDIA RELEASE


The Premier has for the second time refused to disclose details of his meeting with BlueScope Steel executives, Member for Shellharbour, Anna Watson, said today.

“I continue to be surprised by the Premier’s refusal to provide even the most simple of details about his meeting with BlueScope Steel executives.

“I simply don’t understand why the Premier continues to be reluctant to level with the Illawarra community about what BlueScope Steel asked of his Government and whether he’s prepared to deliver on the company’s request.

“We all know the meeting took place and that the company made specific requests of the Premier.

“The Member for Kiama Gareth Ward MP has publicly disclosed the meeting and that specific request were made of the State Government.

“We had a stakeholder meeting on Monday in Wollongong to discuss the challenges facing the steel industry.

“I just don’t understand the Premier’s continual refusal to deal with simple facts in regard to the meeting he has had with BlueScope Steel executives”, Ms Watson said.
