Maverick Queensland independent MP Bob Katter has taken aim at former resources minister Matt Canavan, saying he doesn't believe that Senator Canavan had no knowledge of his mother applying for Italian citizenship on his behalf.

Senator Canavan stepped down from Cabinet, but not the senate, while the High Court determines whether he's eligible to sit in parliament.

Bob Katter's also calling on One Nation Senator Malcolm Roberts to provide a fuller explanation about his citizenship status.

He spoke with political reporter Tom Iggulden.
