On the Australia Post investigation committee, liberal senator Sarah Henderson He asks whether “Labor and Unions” “intentionally” misrepresented the BCG report and whether it has recommended the privatization of Australia Post.
This is because one of the “scenarios” (which everyone denies are “recommendations”) outlines the outlines of privatization (and the loss of about 8,000 jobs). Trish ClancyBCG Managing Director says the company did not recommend a fourth “scenario” path, which defined a broader scope for privatization, but that they discussed it. So the interrogation did not go exactly as Henderson intended.
at the same time, Pauline Hanson He wants to see if the people who put the BCG report together viewed the cost of executives’ bonuses, before introducing labor cuts / post office closings and privatization of services (such as parcels) as “options.”
Clancy He wants to take her informed.
“No, you all shared the report, you should be able to tell me,” she says.
Henderson He jumps to say Clancy will take her informed. Hanson wants answers now and says so, and Henderson jumps up again to ask Hanson not to consider witnesses.

Questions go to the Labor Senator Kimberly KitchingAnd the Who wants to know why someone is defending public interest immunity in relation to the report, and under what reasons it can drop.
Henderson jumps again to protest the reflections against the witnesses. The actual chairperson of this committee, Sarah Hanson YoungAnd the She then thanks Henderson for her input and says she looks forward to the same.
Clancy also said Bridget MacKenzie The BCG report brings “new value and analysis” on the issue of how to secure the future of Australia Post.
