Peter Slipper Releases Cabcharge Documents

Peter Slipper has released copies of Cabcharge vouchers which he says show that the allegations against him are a “complete fabrication”.

In recent days it has become clear that Slipper will be unable to return to the Speaker’s chair. Independents Tony Windsor, Rob Oakeshott and Andrew Wilkie appear to be opposed to his return and there are signs today that the government’s resolve to back Slipper is weakening.

Statement by Peter Slipper:

Please find attached cab charge dockets that I have this afternoon received from the Department of Finance and Deregulation.

These documents have all been completed by me and are clearly in my handwriting as I said they were.

The so called criminal allegation is a complete fabrication, just as the other claims are not accurate.

I repeat that I reject allegations that have been made against me.

I will make a further Statement on this matter in due course.
