Questions without Notice: Economy (17 Feb 2022)

“On direct relevance. First of all, the question doesn't ask about alternatives; the question asks about government policy. The Prime Minister was able to talk about government policy for all of 19 seconds before he felt a need to talk about alternatives, which aren't in the question.”

Questions without Notice: Economy (17 Feb 2022)

“My question is to the Prime Minister. The Reserve Bank predicts real wages will continue to drop through to mid-2023. Doesn't this show low wages are and have always been a deliberate design feature of the economic strategy of this almost-decade-old government?”

Questions without Notice: COVID-19: Aged Care (17 Feb 2022)

“On a point of order: you made a ruling, under standing order 90—I think it was at the beginning of this week—which the comments just then from the Prime Minister directly flouted.”
