Baird faces questions over State's budget blunder
NSW Treasurer Mike Baird has fronted a parliamentary hearing to explain the State Government's $1 billion budget blunder.
The budget estimates committee moved a motion last week to call Mr Baird back for a second hearing on Monday.
Liberal MLC Catherine Cusack, who sits on the committee, said she believed one final hearing seeking clarity would be better for the government that a series of supplementary hearings.
Speaking in NSW Parliament last week Mr Baird accepted responsibility for significant oversight but said it was a direct result of the poor finance system he had inherited from the previous Labor government.
State Opposition Leader John Robertson called for the funds to be re-directed to the education budget.
