Dissolution query

THE dissolution of the Public Accounts Committee is unsatisfactory and the government is not being truthful about its finances, says Social Democratic and Liberal Party leader, Roko Tui Dreketi Ro Teimumu Kepa.

In her response to the announcement by government that the current Public Accounts Committee had been dissolved as a prelude to the resumption of Parliament after the general election, Ro Teimumu said the committee played an important role.

"What the committee has been doing has been unknown to the public," she said.

Ro Teimumu said the committee had an important role to play in terms of looking after the public accounts which is about government's spending.

"We hardly have any idea but we are seeing the expenditure that government has in the past few years."

She said the decision to dissolve the Public Accounts Committee raised some questions as to what the genuine reason for the dissolution was at this time when the committee needed to come forward with its findings.
