OK, here's a new angle. It seems that Parker believes he need only make the standard staff declaration of interests, nothing more. I can confirm that Mike Tuffrey AM, who raised the issue with Parker yesterday, had expected greater detail. I've now been reminded that all five members of the Forensic Audit Panel have made declarations and that these are in response to the same categories assembly members have to address, which require much fuller disclosure. If members of the FAP - who aren't even GLA employees - have done this, why hasn't Parker? Has he been misadvised?
UPDATE, 17.20: To answer my own question, no he hasn't been misadvised. For the purpose of registering interests Parker is just another GLA employee. I've asked why the FAP's members have made the fuller disclosure, so watch this space. I'm still wondering how Parker's position fits with Johnson's fine campaign promises about transparency. That, perhaps, is the real inconsistency.
