Mr BURKE (Watson) (14:54): My question is to the Prime Minister. I refer to the Prime Minister's previous answer. If the condition for any legislation being introduced is that no member of the coalition will cross the floor, doesn't that mean now that each member of the coalition backbench has a right of veto over whether or not this legislation will ever be introduced?

Mr TURNBULL (WentworthPrime Minister) (14:54): The honourable member did not accurately reflect the answer that I gave, but the fact is, as I said this morning and as I said earlier, we seek to ensure that legislation that we introduce has the support of sufficient of our party room to enable it to be carried on our own numbers.
