MP Rob Pyne details explosive allegations in Parliament

MAVERICK MP Rob Pyne has used parliamentary privilege to make explosive allegations against three Queensland councils, including claims of one mayor having shady meetings with federal government ministers and former premiers.

The documents also make claims surrounding overseas council-funded junkets and allegations of salacious affairs with staffers, the Courier Mail reports.

The documents allege one Queensland mayor would even make personal phone calls to the office of federal government ministers to try to assist in the processing of visas for "young Asian women" to allow them into the country quicker.

The documents were heavily redacted to remove identifying details after Speaker Peter Wellington raised concerns about the ­effect they could have on a pending court case.
