NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian's office has revealed it has no documents to show disgraced former MP Daryl Maguire disclosed any financial gain from his side businesses despite the Premier telling a corruption inquiry she assumed he had done so.
Ms Berejiklian faced further questioning in Parliament on Thursday over the nature of her five-year relationship with Mr Maguire amid claims the disgraced former Wagga Wagga MP had a key to the Premier's north shore home as recently as last month.
Mr Maguire is being investigated by the Independent Commission Against Corruption for using his position as an MP for personal gain, including brokering property deals for commission. Ms Berejiklian has been under intense pressure over her claims that she knew nothing about his business dealings.
Questions have also been asked as to why Ms Berejiklian did not end the relationship when she forced Mr Maguire to quit Parliament in 2018 after the ICAC exposed his attempts to broker property deals and seek commission on behalf of a Chinese developer.
When asked at the ICAC last week if she was aware of Mr Maguire's business interests, the Premier replied: "I was aware that he had business interests, and I assumed that he disclosed all of those at the appropriate time."
However, in letters produced to the NSW upper house under an order from the Parliament, the secretary for the Department of Premier and Cabinet, Tim Reardon, and a representative from the Premier's office said neither had records of any business disclosures in relation to Mr Maguire.
MPs are not banned from making money from side jobs, although NSW Parliament this week passed legislation making it illegal for ministers or parliamentary secretaries to receive commissions.
One Nation leader Mark Latham raised further questions about their relationship status on Thursday, telling Parliament Mr Maguire had a key to Ms Berejiklian's north shore home for many years.
"Given that Daryl Maguire had a key to the Premier's north shore home for many years, and while cohabitating came and went as he liked as recently as last month, doesn't this demonstrate an intimate personal relationship and the Premier's failure under the ministerial code of conduct to declare all of Daryl Maguire's business interests," Mr Latham asked in upper house question time.
Labor leader Jodi McKay later asked Ms Berejiklian in Parliament: "Given revelations that Daryl Maguire had a key and access to your home for several years, including as recently as last month, why did you breach your own ministerial code of conduct by failing to disclose this relationship?"
Speaker Jonathon O'Dea initially attempted to stop the question, citing "suppression orders that ICAC has made in terms of restricting publication".
Health Minister Brad Hazzard also told the house: "[This is the] first time in 30 years I've seen any grub actually run against the order of ICAC."
ICAC Inspector Bruce McClintock SC is investigating how suppressed private hearing transcripts were made public after they were inadvertently published for a short period last week.
Despite Mr O'Dea's comments, the Premier indicated she wanted to respond.
"I've read and heard things, including today, which are just practically factually incorrect," Ms Berejiklian told Parliament.
"But I will say this, I respect the process, I have faith in the process and and I ask everybody to have faith in that process, of which I was a witness."
Transport Minister Andrew Constance addressed the media late on Thursday, saying Mr Latham and Ms McKay would be referred to the privileges committee for the "slur" against the Premier.
When asked why, Mr Constance said: "Why not?"
The ICAC heard revelations Ms Berejiklian knew Mr Maguire was receiving commissions for brokering property deals as far back as 2014. Several phone calls intercepted by the ICAC also revealed Mr Maguire extensively discussed his personal finances with Ms Berejiklian.
Mr Latham's question came after Ms Berejiklian did a round of media interviews earlier in the week, which included revealing she was in love with Mr Maguire and hoped they would marry.
But she also said he "wasn't my boyfriend" and she did not think the relationship was serious enough to warrant introducing Mr Maguire to her family or friends.
