Questions without Notice
My question is to the Minister representing the Prime Minister, Senator Cormann. I refer to Prime Minister Morrison's call to the New South Wales police commissioner about the criminal investigation into the Minister for Energy and Emissions Reduction. A spokesman for Attorney-General Christian Porter has confirmed that he was in the room during the call. Why did it take five days to make that fact public, and why did Prime Minister Morrison fail to advise the House that the Attorney-General was present for the phone call when he made a statement to the House five days earlier?
