Premier Christy Clark says she’s taking quick action on a report that found government resources were used in a Liberal party plan to win ethnic votes.

The report by Clark’s deputy minister John Dyble says three people mixed government and Liberal party work.

Clark says two of those quit without severance, while a third is no longer in government.

Multiculturalism Minister John Yap resigned from cabinet after the ethnic outreach plan was leaked last week.

Dyble’s report says Yap had some involvement in meetings about the plan, and Clark says Yap won’t be coming back to cabinet.

The premier says the Liberal party has also written a cheque for 70-thousand dollars to repay government for work that bureaucrats did for her party.
