Legal Defence

axpayer funding of legal defence costs for Members and Senators ruled to be ineligible for election to the Parliament. The signatories of this petition believe it is unfair on tax-payers to be held responsible for legal defence costs of these wrongly elected people.

We therefore ask the House to take any and all action possible to recover monies for these failed legal defences from those mentioned above. Furthermore we ask the House to legislate to make people ruled in the future to be wrongly elected, liable for all legal costs in these matters.
