Pauline Hanson's One Nation

Mr BOWEN (McMahon) (14:22): My question is to the Prime Minister. Will the government reveal the details of its secret deal with One Nation before the 28 July by-elections or after them?

Mr TURNBULL (WentworthPrime Minister) (14:23): Talking about personal discussions and conversations, I noted in the shadow minister for small business's interview with Alan Jones today, he was slipping and sliding, failing to defend his leader's captain's call—

Ms Rowland interjecting

The SPEAKER: The member for Greenway is warned.

Mr TURNBULL: And he said:

Just on your point, Alan, while I'm not going to go into personal conversations that the leadership group or Bill has with us or I have with him …

Why not? But he says he always takes a very consultative approach. There'll be nothing more consultative, I would say, than the event in Devonport on 4 July, when the Leader of the Opposition is having a business luncheon and is going to reveal Labor's plan for Braddon. It's advertised nicely. There's the Leader of the Opposition, and there are two young men in hard hats and high-vis. I'm just wondering who they work for. Do you think they might be working for Penguin Composites, so popular—

The SPEAKER: The Prime Minister will resume his seat. The Manager of Opposition Business on a point of order.

Mr Burke: Direct relevance. It's a really—if yesterday was a long bow, this one's extraordinary.

The SPEAKER: I do say to the Prime Minister: the first part of his answer was completely relevant due to the wording of the question, but I think he's now beginning to stray into another area. The member for McMahon on a point of order.

Mr Bowen: Mr Speaker, could I ask the Prime Minister to table the transcript of myself on Alan Jones and any transcripts he has of himself and Alan Jones!

Opposition members interjecting

The SPEAKER: Members on my left! I've got to say to the member for McMahon: I've made the point on public documents. He's not going to use the House as a distribution mechanism for his transcripts, okay?
