Govt must immediately publish the APEC Audit Report

ACT NOW is calling on the government to immediately publish the Auditor General’s report on spending for the 2018 APEC Summit.

The government has repeatedly promised that the APEC Audit report will be made public but it is now almost three-years since the Summit and we are still waiting.

According to the Auditor General, his report was given to the Speaker of Parliament in April, but has yet to be presented to MPs.
