But there was no reference to the actions in the Governor-General’s diary, which lists in detail his numerous activities, including phone calls, official events, meetings and swearing-in ceremonies.
The Greens are calling on Mr Hurley to clarify whether the omission was his idea.
“The question is, did he have a conversation with the Prime Minister? Was there a discussion with the government about not disclosing these appointments,” Greens Senator David Shoebridge has said.
Earlier in the week, Mr Hurley’s office defended his actions, saying he had followed processes and had “no reason to believe” Mr Morrison’s appointments would not be communicated.
