My question is to the Minister representing the Treasurer, Senator Cormann. When asked about reports he had been enlisted by a group of government backbenchers known as the 'Parliamentary Friends of Payday Lending' to water down the Turnbull government's reforms to crack down on dodgy lenders, the Treasurer said:

… the report is entirely false.

Only a day later the member for Dawson, George Christensen, put his name to the backbench revolt. Does the Treasurer stand by his statement?
