Ethics Committee to rule on Jo-Ann Miller

Queensland’s Ethics Committee is expected to meet today to determine whether embattled police minister, Jo-Ann Miller, misled parliament.

The parliamentary Ethics Committee is probing claims Ms Miller failed to destroy confidential documents and signed an incorrect statement saying she had.

She was referred to the committee by her own Labor government last month.


The committee will consider Ms Miller’s case at a private meeting at 1pm on Thursday and a decision will be tabled in parliament at a later date.


If Ms Miller is found to have misled parliament Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk should reconsider the minister’s position, according to the ministerial code of conduct.

Ms Palaszczuk has refused to stand Ms Miller aside during the Ethics Committee investigation.
