Queenslanders can have no confidence the Health Payroll Bungle will be repaired after the man dubbed “Mr. Fixit” resigned, Shadow Minister for Information and Communication Technology Scott Emerson said today.

The departure of Queensland Health Deputy Director-General Michael Walsh follows the October resignation of Queensland Health’s Payroll and Establishment Services Director Alan McGraw.

“We have now seen the two top bureaucrats whose job was to fix Queensland Health Payroll debacle quit in the last two months.” Mr. Emerson said.


“But the two people Queenslanders want to see resign, Health Minister Paul Lucas and ICT Minister Robert Schwarten, continue to refuse to take responsibility for the Queensland Health Payroll debacle.”

“This bungle will cost Queensland taxpayers at least $209 Million to fix but Lucas and Schwarten keep their jobs.” Mr. Emerson said.
