Questions without Notice
Jenny McAllister (NSW, Australian Labor Party) Share this | Hansard source
My question is to the Attorney-General, Senator Brandis. I refer to his statement reported yesterday:
We want to keep the cost of the plebiscite as low as it can be kept …
Is the cabinet's decision to provide public funding to the 'yes' and the 'no' plebiscite campaigns what the Attorney-General had in mind, or was this yet another concession to ensure that the conservatives in his party would agree to a plebiscite?
