Backing for RSPCA probe (Tasmania)

ABC NEWS , 14 Nov 2012

Tasmania’s lower House has unanimously passed a motion to set up a parliamentary inquiry into the state branch of the RSPCA.

The Liberal motion requires the public accounts committee to review the capacity of the animal welfare organisation to spend taxpayers’ funds in line with public expectations.

Opposition spokesman, Jeremy Rockliff, told parliament the RSPCA had been in a state of perpetual turmoil over the past few years, due to corporate governance issues and it is time for action.

“This organisation is receiving hard working taxpayer funds and it’s upon us parliamentarians in this place to make sure those funds are being spent appropriately,” he said.

The state branch is struggling financially and has sacked its second chief executive in three years.

Some staff have called for its three-member board to be sacked.

Yesterday the Government said it was reviewing taxpayer funding in light of the management woes.
