It was a 'passing conversation' about the trade position: Dominic Perrottet

New South Wales Premier Dominic Perrottet says it was a “passing conversation” he had with John Barilaro about taking a trade position.

Mr Perrottet was asked if it occurred to him to dissuade Mr Barilaro from taking the position after only recently leaving parliament.

Mr Perrottet said there was an “independent process" in place and “clearly there were problems with that process".
