I begin with two questions:
(1) Why has the Premier of New South Wales, Mr. Bob Carr, continually and consistently thwarted numerous submissions calling on the Parliamentary Stay Safe Committee to mount a full and open inquiry into the N.S.W. Taxi Industry, despite the matter having broad cross-party and cross-factional support?
(2) Why has the N.S.W. Ombudsman's Office, after a preliminary 0examination of some of the evidence presented below, privately suggested that the evidence would be more appropriately forwarded to the ICAC for examination?
