Independent Member for Clark, Andrew Wilkie, asked Prime Minister Anthony Albanese the below question during Question Time. See above video for full question and response.
“Prime Minister Sportsbet donated to the Shadow Minister, about to become the Minister, responsible for online gambling, and the gambling industry has extended hospitality to the Minister ever since.
“Sure disclosure rules have been met. But clearly the practice is morally wrong and breaches 3.21 and 3.22 of the Ministerial Code of Conduct.
“PM what’s to be done about it? Or is the Government’s and Opposition’s silence the return on millions of dollars of gambling donations?”
