Statement on questions of confidence and supply
The Federal Independent Member for Indi, Cathy McGowan stands by her position of support for the Government on the questions of confidence and supply. The confirmation follows the revelation of the Deputy Prime Minister, Barnaby Joyce’s entitlement to dual citizenship.
“My relationship with the Government stays the same. I am not going to be distracted by party politics. We have an agenda and we still have work to do on trains, renewable energy and mobile black spot funding.”
Ms McGowan said she would support an audit of the citizenship status of all MPs and Senators. She plans to move a motion seeking the Register of Members’ Interests to include citizenship status.
