My question is to the Prime Minister. Can the Prime Minister confirm that, when the government had to choose an investigator to conduct an independent investigation into reports the Assistant Treasurer used taxpayer funded staff to branch stack, it chose the exact same law firm the Assistant Treasurer used to work for? Can he also confirm the government paid the law firm $25,000 for the privilege of investigating its former senior associate, who the law firm describes as a firm friend?
