Zali Steggall MP questions donation law changes in Question Time

17 June, 2020

“State governments have led the way with prohibitions on industry donations and anti-corruption watchdogs.”

 “In contrast, at federal level, we still have no national integrity and anti-corruption watchdog and no prohibition on political donations from property development, mining, tobacco or gambling industries."

This is the virus corrupting our democracy. Rather than introducing legislation to bring federal donation laws up to scratch and protect out democracy your government has introduced legislation to get around stronger state government laws. Why?”
