NSW Opposition Leader Chris Minns says it is a “bit of an indulgence” for state government MPs to “hit the road at a pretty precarious time in New South Wales’ history”.
“I can understand the Premier’s set of circumstances, I think she pretty clearly outlined that last week,” Mr Minns told Sky News host Paul Murray.
“But the deputy premier, the transport minister both hitting the road, I mean these by-elections are expensive.
“We want to be opened up on Freedom Day in the coming weeks and really I think it’s a bit of an indulgence to be honest from these people who’ve hit the road at a pretty precarious time in New South Wales’ history.
“I think this takes attention, time, effort, money, away from what should be the real battle and that is getting NSW out of the COVID-19 pandemic.”
