OPPOSITION parties have increased pressure on the state government to convene an anti-corruption commission, uniting yesterday in the upper house.

Victoria’s current arrangements were called a ”dog’s breakfast” by former NSW premier Nick Greiner at the weekend.

A motion – moved by oposition spokesman on scrutiny of government, David Davis – calls on the Victorian Government to introduce an independent, broad-based, anti-corruption commission. The motion passed 18 votes to 16 with Liberals, Greens and the Democratic Labor Party in support.

Police Minister Bob Cameron said the motion was a ”political stunt”.
