"A special cabinet meeting is underway in Sydney with New South Wales Government ministers receiving a briefing from the heads of the state's two corruption watchdogs. Independent Commission Against Corruption (ICAC) head Gerald Cripps and the Ombudsman Bruce Barbour are detailing what is expected of ministers in terms of accountability and transparency in running their ministerial offices. The Premier says he is drawing a line under the practices of the past and want to strengthen his government's administration.
