Public Service Management (Transparency of Boards) Bill 2014: First Stage
The purpose of the Bill is to ensure that members of public bodies must have their expenses and other related matters declared to the Standards in Public Office Commission. I believe it is worthy of consideration.
That leave be granted to introduce a Bill entitled an Act to provide for the cessation of the practice of providing payment to persons who serve on the boards of public bodies or other similar entities; to require that the employment or engagement of such persons by a public body to be conditional upon their filing of a declaration with the Standards in Public Office Commission; and to require that the payment of expenses to persons who serve on the boards of public bodies to be conditional upon their filing of a declaration with the Standards in Public Office Commission and to provide for related matters.
