Questions without Notice
Royal Commission into Misconduct in the Banking, Superannuation and Financial Services Industry
My question is to the Minister representing the Attorney-General. Since the Senate agreed to my motion for the terms of reference for the royal commission into banking to be extended to include examination of the conduct of administrators and insolvency practitioners, particularly where these entities act against farmers, to include the dispute resolution process of financial service entities, to extend the reporting period for 12 months, and to increase funding for the royal commission to allow it to hear more submissions and to undertake these additional investigations, has the government advised the Governor-General to request letters patent to be sent to Commissioner Hayne changing his terms of reference in line with my motion?
