The board of Racing Queensland Limited (RQL) is expected to put forward a transitional plan to the Queensland government this week.

RQL chairman Bob Bentley said his board was due to meet on Tuesday to discuss the new Queensland government’s racing policy.

However, Bentley refused to speculate on his own future while RQL was still in discussions with the newly-elected Liberal National Party (LNP) government.

“The LNP policy is to change the structure of Racing Queensland,” Bentley said.

“The board is meeting today and it’s our aim to put forward a transitional plan to the government this week.

“The most sensible way through all this is to work out a transitional plan so they (the government) can achieve what they want.

“We’re happy to negotiate with the government.”

The LNP government sent in auditors immediately following last month’s election victory to inspect Racing Queensland’s books.

The chief executive of the government’s racing department has also been ordered to investigate whether RQL is a “fit and proper” control body.

New Racing Minister Steve Dickson is currently working on setting up a Ministerial Advisory Council with plans to draw up legislation for a return to separate control bodies for the three racing codes which were brought under one umbrella by the RQL board.

Bentley also refused to comment on the controversial payout figures to four key RQL executives who resigned only days after the state election.

Chief Executive Malcolm Tuttle, director of Integrity Operations Jamie Orchard, Product Development manager Paul Brennan and corporate counsel Shara Reid are reported to have received payouts figures totalling $1.7 million.

“I’ve got no comment on the resignations,” Bentley said.

“I’m comfortable with the decision the board made.”
