Blake Review findings reconfirmed

An addendum to The Blake Review report has reconfirmed the findings that no Head of Agency assessed in the initial report had potentially breached the Code of Conduct, the Tasmanian Government confirmed today.

Former Tasmanian Auditor-General, Mike Blake AM, was engaged by the Tasmanian Government to conduct an independent review of the conduct of Heads of Agency to determine whether there were any potential breaches of the State Service Code of Conduct.

Premier, Jeremy Rockliff said that after releasing the final report of the Blake Review in April, he invited Mr Blake to consider any additional information that he considered relevant to his Terms of Reference.

“I have accepted Mr Blake’s addendum which confirms that no Head of Agency named in his initial report had potentially breached the Code of Conduct,” Premier Rockliff said.

“I thank Mr Blake for the additional work on his review and the extra measures that he has undertaken to satisfy himself, and all Tasmanians, that no breaches have occurred.

“I maintain my resolve that the Tasmanian Government will leave no stone unturned.”

The Premier said the Government has accepted Mr Blake’s findings and is considering the recommendations, noting that these remain unchanged in the addendum.

“Now that I have received this final piece of information, I have directed the Head of the State Service to provide me with advice about the recommendations made in the report,” Premier Rockliff said.
