As we head into what might be the last sitting week for this Parliament, the Turnbull Government continues to show a total disregard for parliamentary processes and accountability.

The Deputy Prime Minister must explain why his Department is taking so long to provide answers that were put on notice back in February. The Opposition, stakeholders and the public have the right to know what the Minister’s Department is up to.
Maybe we shouldn’t be surprised though, as we know the Deputy Prime Minister, Barnaby Joyce, is not a fan of ever providing the full story.
