Questions without Notice
My question is to the Minister representing the Prime Minister, Senator Cormann. I refer to the report of the Secretary of the Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet in relation to the application of the Statement of Ministerial Standardsagainst former ministers Pyne and Bishop. Does Mr Morrison guarantee the accuracy of the report?
The report states that:
The Australian government register of lobbyists lists Adam Howard as the sole owner of GC Advisory and does not list EY as a client. Which is correct—Dr Parkinson's report or the register of lobbyists?
Given that Dr Parkinson's report now contains at least three errors of fact under question, how can the Prime Minister possibly rely on this report?
