Printer blamed for map error
Wednesday, 18th August, 2010
A printer has been blamed for the wrong map of Farrer being added to a recent mail-out from Sussan Ley's office, although the same error was seen on her official website.
Ms Ley's Albury office manager Debbie Brown admitted to the error when the BDT contacted her yesterday, and said it was the first time anyone had noticed it.
The map leaves Wilcannia and Ivanhoe out of the electorate, and has printed on the bottom that it was current at November 2005.
The BDT also found the 2005 version of the map on Ms Ley's official website, her business card and her House of Rep's web page.
"It wasn't a deliberate mistake," Ms Brown said.
"We would (correct it) if we had time to send it out."
Just a few hours after being notified, Ms Brown released a media alert and removed the 2005 map from the website.
