Greens criticise Government for refusing to support cash-for-access reform

Greens spokesperson for Integrity in Government Hon Alison Xamon MLC has criticised the Government for refusing to support electoral reform banning political fundraisers which offer access to Ministers for large sums of cash.

Ms Xamon said the Government refused to commit to reforming laws which allow controversial political fundraisers such as the Leaders’ Forum, which sells tickets for up to $25,000, when she brought on for debate her Electoral Amendment (Access to Ministers) Bill 2017 in the Legislative Council this week.
