Branch-stacking probe under fire at Victorian ALP state conference

    THE Victorian ALP has been accused by its own members of failing to properly investigate allegations of branch stacking.

    The finger pointing came after the party’s state conference today was told an internal investigation had found no allegations of branch stacking.

    “I’m really pleased to report … that no specific allegations of branch stacking were brought before the committee,” Andrew Giles, one of the members on the committee investigating the allegations, told the conference.

    But Labor stalwart Eric Dearricott said the committee had delivered a “damp squib”.

    “The committee was meant to investigate branch stacking.” Mr Dearricott said.

    “They didn’t necessarily have to get the information on a platter.

    “They knew where to find it, they didn’t do so.”

    John Lannan from the Flinders branch said the committee’s report was “a complete cop-out”.
