My question is to the Prime Minister. Evidence at Senate estimates today confirms that long-term Liberal mate and former Crosby Textor pollster Jim Reed received more than $1 million in government contracts at the behest of the Prime Minister's department. So why does the Prime Minister treat taxpayers' money as his own?

All these arrangements are done by the department through the appropriate processes.
