Qualifications of Members

Ms BUTLER (Griffith) (14:41): My question is to the Prime Minister. Can the Prime Minister explain why there is one rule for the member for New England and another for the Minister for Home Affairs when it comes to qualifications to be a member of parliament and a minister in the government? Doesn't this sort of double standard just confirm the Prime Minister's own description of his own government as the muppet show?

Mr MORRISON (CookPrime Minister) (14:42): I don't agree with the premise of the member's question and therefore there's no response to make.
