WHAT THE MEDIA IS SAYING
Macfarlane’s appointment has been widely publicised in Australian media with the ABC reporting concerns were raised by Labor and the Greens regarding compliance with code of conduct laws that require 18-month work restrictions for departing ministers.
Ian told the ABC prior to taking up the role, he had cleared the position with the relevant people in the Prime Minister’s office and he is “confident he is not in breach of the agreement”.
“QRC is not a registered lobbying organisation, it’s a representative body and I will comply with the code,” Ian told the news publisher.
The Sydney Morning Herald reported Macfarlane was looking forward to providing the Queensland resources sector a form of certainty after the state’s resources industry experienced 20,000 job cuts in two years.
Macfarlane also told the herald, he would be taking a more “conciliatory tone” with stakeholders compared to Roche’s more “combative” approach.
