Social Security Minister's statement

23 May 2019

customer and local services

The Social Security Minister, Deputy Judy Martin, has issued the following statement:

“When Deputy Geoff Southern proposed a vote of no confidence in the States Employment Board I regretfully asked the Deputy to resign from his position as my Assistant Minister, as a vote of no confidence is a very serious matter.

Senator Le Fondré has made a point of accepting a range of views in Government, and has chosen not to operate under collective responsibility. However, In my view, it is not compatible to occupy the role of Assistant Minister in a government while also proposing a vote of no confidence in the work of an integral part of that government.

“As Deputy Southern has declined my request for his resignation, I have no other option but to dismiss him as my Assistant Minister. This is effective immediately.”​
