Special Minister of State


Mr DREYFUS (IsaacsDeputy Manager of Opposition Business) (14:39): My question is, again, to the Special Minister of State. I refer to the minister's answers in question time this week. Clause 1.2 of the Prime Minister's statement of ministerial standards states:

In recognition that public office is a public trust, therefore, the people of Australia are entitled to expect that, as a matter of principle, Ministers will act with due regard for integrity, fairness, accountability, responsibility and the public interest …

Will the minister act in the public interest and resign?


Mr BROUGH (FisherMinister for Defence Materiel and Science and Special Minister of State) (14:39): After due consideration, no.
