Ms. Berejiklian also faces the embarrassing spectacle that the House of Lords’ head of government is suspended by the Chamber for “failure to submit documents … in connection with the tied grant round of the Stronger Communities Fund”.

If successful, Prime Minister Don Harwin will be suspended from the Chamber for two days – the first time since former Labor Treasurer Michael Egan was suspended in 1998.

Ms Berejiklian defended her integrity last week after her shock evidence before the Independent Commission against Corruption, where she revealed that she has had a “close personal relationship” with Mr Maguire since 2015. She kept it a secret because she is a “very private person” “.

At the weekend, Ms. Berejiklian gave an interview to a gossip columnist The Sunday telegraphwhere she described her personal life and told the newspaper that she was in love with Mr. Maguire and thought they were getting married.


Ms. Berejiklian said she would not resign from the corruption investigation based on her bombshell evidence. She is investigating whether her former lover used his position as MP for financial gain.

“Hand on heart, I did not do anything wrong,” said Ms. Berejiklian on Friday.

A spokeswoman for Ms. Berejiklian said on Sunday that the guidelines for the community fund were “signed by the then prime minister, the deputy prime minister and the minister of local government”.

“All relevant documents were made available to the House of Lords, including the written and signed documents approving the spending. The Fund for Stronger Communities did not require an application process as it funded new councils from 2016 and merger-affected councils proposal, “she said.

“The allocations of funds followed the agreed guidelines at all times.”

Treasury Secretary Damien Tudehope told the House last week that the government “cannot produce a document that does not exist”.

“If they don’t exist, it’s clearly a political problem,” he said.

Ms. Berejiklian’s colleagues have sworn that there will be no leadership challenge. She insists that her popular public profile means that she will only leave politics at a time of her choosing.

However, some of her MPs were dismayed when a senior liberal spoke on condition of anonymity and said, “She will never be able to enforce discipline again.”


Another Liberal MP said Ms. Berejiklian’s evidence “raised more questions than it answered”.

Mr Barilaro will also return to parliament on Wednesday, more than four weeks after leaving mental health, following the bitter coalition that spat over the controversial koala planning policy.

Meanwhile, the Labor MLC John Graham has filed a motion in the House of Lords pending a decision from President John Ajaka. He calls on Mr. Harwin, the senior government official in the Chamber, to be suspended for “contempt of” the House “.

Mr Graham said it was “begging” that 249 grants to councils could be approved without signed papers and told the House of Lords, “Was this done on a whiteboard or post-it note?”

In one case, the Ryde Council received more than $ 2 million in funding for a skate park before applying for a grant, while the Hornsby Council, which was not merged, received $ 90 million to build a quarry into a park to transform. Both councils sit in coalition-held seats.

The fund is the subject of a parliamentary inquiry into allegations of rorting and has prompted the government to submit all documents related to the approvals for the grants.

Mark Latham, the leader of a nation, told parliament that the government was playing “this house as a mug.”

“The proposal that the government run the $ 250 million scholarship program with no guidelines, no advertising, no application forms, and no printed matter indicating how the decisions were made is fantastic,” he said.

Labor has repeatedly claimed that 95 percent of total funding was used for coalition seats, with only five of the projects funded going to Labor seats.
