Questions without Notice
My question is to the Minister representing the Prime Minister, Senator Brandis. I refer to the minister who, when asked in question time last week about media reports that Mr Turnbull dined with a Chinese political donor and wealthy businessman, Mr Liu, four days after one of Mr Liu's companies donated $40,000 to the Queensland Liberal National Party, said, 'I am not familiar with the details of those reports.' Given that the minister has had a week to familiarise himself, I ask the minister: who invited Mr Liu, and on what basis was the invitation to Mr Liu issued?
