New South Wales Premier Kristina Keneally had directed public servants to destroy thousands of what are being described as potentially sensitive government documentsCabinet documents are excluded and are held for 30 years before being released. Ms Keneally says she wants the job to be done properly. “I expect all public servants, be they in the bureaucracy or government advisers, to be following that direction,” she said. But the Opposition’s Chris Hartcher says the normal convention is for all documents to be handed over to any incoming government. “It’s not like a World War II movie where you destroy everything before the enemy take the fortress,” he said. He says it is clear the Government is trying to cover its tracks rather than provide a smooth transition to new leadership. Greens MP David Shoebridge says the Government has something to hide. “Where do you start? The reasons why they shut down the Parliament before Christmas, the reasons why we have those last-minute changes to planning in Barangaroo?” he said. But Ms Keneally has defended shredding the documents.
