Bell put in difficult position after document leak

Fri, 29 Jun 2012

The Chief Minister says he was left in a very difficult position after one of his Ministers leaked a confidential document.

David Cretney was trying to help a constituent who was campaigning against pre-school closures when he handed over the private paper from the Council of Ministers.

The campaigners then told a committee of politicians that Mr Cretney had given them the document.

The Infrastructure Minister has apologised and offered to resign.

Allan Bell says there were mitigating circumstances.[play media file below]
