REVIEW OF THE MEMBERS OF PARLIAMENT (REGISTER OF INTERESTS) ACT 1978
Submission by the Accountability Round Table
The submission has been prompted by our consideration of recent public discussion of a fund raising practice that has developed in Australia.
It appears that the major political parties now regard it as acceptable to hold functions to which individuals and business interests purchase admission for a substantial sum on the basis that by doing so they will secure an opportunity to speak with ministers or shadow ministers.
