Media Statement – 13 Jan
Today I have made a personal decision to resign as Minister for Health, Aged Care and Sport in the Turnbull government.
This morning I submitted the final part of my report into Dr Parkinson’s inquiry into my travel and its compliance with ministerial standards. Similarly, I and my office are complying with the Department of Finance’s review into the travel rules.
I am confident that I have followed the rules, not just regarding entitlements but most importantly the ministerial code of conduct, and I do not object to the material that I have provided being made public.
