Statement on PM's announcement of change to ministerial standards

Federal Independent Member for Indi, Cathy McGowan has responded to Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull’s announcement this afternoon of an addition to the ministerial standards that prohibits ministers from engaging in sexual relations with their staff.


“I welcome the Prime Minister’s clarity on the expectations he has for the behaviour of ministers,” Ms McGowan said.


“The announcement does not take away the need for a discussion that I will continue to have with colleagues around the introduction of a code of conduct for all those who work in the Parliament.”
