   10   Federal Integrity Commission

Mr Wilkie, by leave, moved—That:

(1)        the House notes that:

(a)        over a long time now the behaviour of both major parties has made it abundantly clear that Parliament cannot deal with matters of ministerial integrity, and Australia urgently needs a Federal Integrity Commission;

(b)        Australia needs a strong and independent integrity commission that can launch its own inquiries, hold public hearings, make public findings and examine federal politicians and their staff;

(c)        the scope of this integrity commission must extend beyond criminal offences to a range of corrupt and unethical behaviour including donation-fuelled favouritism, cronyism and the rorting of parliamentary entitlements;

(d)        the Federal Government’s proposed National Integrity Commission is half-baked and would be the weakest watchdog in the country with its investigations being held behind closed doors and the results kept secret; and

(e)        the Australian peoples’ trust in members of parliament is at an all-time low and we need to rebuild the culture of integrity in this Parliament because it is essential that the community has faith in the institutions of government;

(2)        the House further notes that, in September this year, the Senate passed a bill to establish a federal anti-corruption commission; and

(3)        the Members for Clark, Kennedy, Mayo and Melbourne therefore call on the major parties for bipartisan support for a strong, well-funded, wide ranging and independent national integrity commission without delay.

Closure

Mr Buchholz (Assistant Minister for Road Safety and Freight Transport) moved—That the question be now put.

Question—That the question be now put—put.
