Saskatchewan cabinet travel expenses to be published online
Future out-of-province travel claims by Saskatchewan cabinet ministers and their staff will all be made public online, Premier Brad Wall says.
Wall's government has been answering questions about a trip by Social Services Minister June Draude and a senior government official last summer.
Their claims included a $3,600 bill for a car service for four days and a $200 lunch with a friend.
The case has dominated Question Period in the legislature for several days.
Wall says beginning this year, all travel claims by ministers and their staff will be made public twice a year.
According to Wall, the current government is spending less — overall — on cabinet ministers' travel than the previous NDP administration.
