SERIOUS concerns are growing at the highest levels of government that Environment Minister Rob Duhamel is no longer fit for ministerial office.
An email is circulating among ministers following an appearance by the Deputy before business leaders yesterday at which he has been accused of making a series of inappropriate and misjudged comments which left his audience shaking their heads in disbelief.
Deputy Duhamel disagreed that his talk had been off-topic and said it was for others to judge how his speech had been received.
When asked whether he was aware of the growing concern among the Council of Ministers over his performance as Environment Minister he said he was not aware of any problems.
