Prime Minister


Mr DREYFUS (IsaacsDeputy Manager of Opposition Business) (14:45): My question is to the Prime Minister. The Prime Minister voted against the banking royal commission 26 times before claiming it was his idea. He supported the National Energy Guarantee before opposing it. Now, he's voted for a national integrity commission without being able to say whether or not he supports it! How can Australians know when this Prime Minister is actually committed to something or if he's just pretending?


Mr MORRISON (CookPrime Minister) (14:46): I'm not going to be lectured on integrity by the Labor Party!

Opposition members interjecting

Mr MORRISON: I'm not going to be lectured on integrity by the Labor Party—the party of Sam Dastyari, the party of Craig Thomson, the party of Eddie Obeid, the party of Ian Macdonald, the party of Joe Tripodi, the party of WA Inc. This is the only political party in Australia that can open up branches in prisons, because they've got enough people in them from being convicted of corrupt conduct, which has sent them to prison. This is a Labor Party that know all about muck because they live their lives in it. That's the Labor Party that Australians have got to know over the last few decades and more—whether it was Rex Jackson all those years ago, going all the way through to Eddie Obeid.

Mr Burke interjecting

Mr MORRISON: And I hear the guffaws of the member for Watson. We always remember the 'bend the knee' ski trip you had down at Eddie Obeid's place. We remember you going there, going: 'I just went there. We didn't really know. We're not that close. I just went down there to spend a bit of time at Eddie's place.' The Labor Party when it comes to integrity? Give me a break!

Honourable members interjecting

The SPEAKER: Members on my left! The member for Gorton's already been warned.
