Turnbull Government

Mr BOWEN (McMahon) (14:39): My question is to the Prime Minister. In this morning's cabinet leak it has been revealed that the Prime Minister and Treasurer were rolled on reforms to negative gearing by ministers loyal to the member for Warringah, including the minister for immigration, the minister for the environment and the Minister for Social Services. If the Prime Minister and Treasurer cannot even win an economic argument in the cabinet, isn't it clear that the member for Warringah is right and that this is a government that is in office but not in power?

Mr TURNBULL (WentworthPrime Minister) (14:40): All I can say to the honourable member is that I refer him to my earlier answer and remind him of the very wise insight, which I suspect has always applied in this place: those who are talking do not know and those who know are not talking.
