National Integrity Commission


Mr SHORTEN (MaribyrnongLeader of the Opposition) (14:40): My question is to the Prime Minister. As the Prime Minister believes that a national integrity commission is a 'fringe issue', why has he told the House today that his government has been working on it for months? Why did his government vote for a national integrity commission today if he thinks it's a 'fringe issue'?


Mr MORRISON (CookPrime Minister) (14:41): This is a government that is able to deal with many, many issues. We'll continue to cover the field in the interest of all Australians. What's quite clear is we're yet to see a policy from those opposite that would do anything useful for the economy. That's why, as a result, Australians do not trust this Leader of the Opposition. It's been five years now. For five years they've had a good look at this Leader of the Opposition, and, after five years, they're not buying this Leader of the Opposition, because they know they cannot trust the leader of the Labor Party to run a strong economy.
