A former political staffer for Gladys Berejiklian had a “difficult” conversation with her about her relationship with Daryl Maguire late last year, a NSW ICAC inquiry heard this morning.

Former chief of staff Neil Harley said that it was an uncomfortable conversation because the then-NSW premier was “inherently a very private person”.

“We didn’t go into detail about when [the relationship] ... commenced and when it finished,” he said. “We talked in broad terms about the nature of the relationship.”
