New South Wales opposition leader Chris Mings has asked Prime Minister Dominic Perrotet to clarify before the media whether Transport Minister David Elliott has been offered a public service post in London. .
According to one of the Nine newspapers, the prime minister discussed two trade-related positions with Mr Elliott, including that of agent general in London.
The role in London is a statutory appointment, meaning it falls under the public service’s responsibility rather than a minister.
The prime minister’s office declined to comment when asked if such discussions had taken place with the transport minister over the position of internal affairs chief.
“These are serious allegations, and I always thought Mr Perrotet was pretty outspoken despite our differences. I think we need to explain,” Mings told Sky News Australia.
“At least, I categorically deny that it is true.”
