His comment was that it was unreasonable to expect him to reform the authority in 22 days when the protecting public funds committee took years to submit a report with thousands of pages. During his remarks, the minister noted the measures he has taken since taking office, including sending a letter to the Department for Legal Advice and Legislation to execute a court order relating to the agriculture authority, as well as a letter relating to authority employees resuming work after a decree halting their tenure.
