We've revealed that the Independent Commission Against Corruption sought $2.1 million in extra funding but was given just a quarter of that, despite Premier Mike Baird telling Parliament "if ICAC needs additional money we would be happy to provide it".
Mr Baird told Parliament last year that "we have an arrangement that if ICAC needs additional money we would be happy to provide it".
It appears the Premier has misled Parliament by only granting one quarter of the funds ICAC requested. He's a premier that says he's tough on corruption, then starves the ICAC of funds. With a $1.5m funding shortfall, it begs the question, which corruption investigations were not be able to proceed?
