Questions without Notice
Commonwealth Integrity Commission
Allegra Spender (Wentworth, Independent) Share this | Hansard source
ER () (): My question is to the Attorney-General, the member for Isaacs. The Labor Party went to the election with a commitment to legislating a national anticorruption commission. One of the design principles in this policy was that the NACC would have the power to hold public hearings. Could the Attorney please explain why public hearings are essential requirements for an integrity commission and rule out any deals which remove that power?
