The Integrity Commission has found the state’s parliamentarians have problems filling out disclosure of interest forms.
An analysis of the 25 forms submitted by House of Assembly members and 14 by Legislative Council members from the last parliamentary make-up found just one complied with the rules.
Integrity Commission chief executive officer Richard Bingham said other forms contained insufficient information on income sources, real estate interests, positions within corporations, and disclosures on travel and gifts.
He said the commission was working with the Department of Premier and Cabinet on a new form to reduce non-compliant responses.
“Independent verification of members’ disclosures, along with increased public access to and scrutiny of the register, contributes to public confidence in the transparency of parliamentary processes, and are important components of parliamentary integrity,” Mr Bingham said.
