New FLA Board to be named soon

Published:Friday | August 25, 2017 | 10:28 AM

National Security Minister Robert Montague says a new board is to be appointed for the Firearm Licensing Authority (FLA) soon.

The previous board resigned recently, amid allegations of corruption.

Montague says the vetting process is currently taking place.

The Opposition has said it is extremely concerned that no new board has been named by the security minister to direct the affairs of the Authority, leaving the CEO Shane Dalling as the chief person in charge.

Meanwhile, in giving an update on whether some current firearm holders will lose their permits, Montague steered away from revealing the exact number of FLA files that have been investigated and red flagged.
