PARLIAMENT OF AUSTRALIA HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES Question QUESTIONS WITHOUT NOTICE Parliamentarians’ Entitlements Wednesday, 12 August 2015 Clive Palmer – Member for Fairfax Mr PALMER ( Fairfax ) ( 14:28 ): My question is to the Prime Minister. How many trips and entitlements has the Prime Minister’s Chief of Staff approved for government backbenchers, ministers and families, and are such approvals, or the failure to reveal them, acceptable to the government? Is the government using entitlements to support the office of the Prime Minister? Mr Pyne: Mr Speaker, on a point of order: the question asked by the member for Fairfax is not within the responsibilities of the Prime Minister and is factually wrong. Therefore it is almost impossible for the Prime Minister to answer it. The SPEAKER: I was about to say not only that the question asked for a whole lot of detail that the Prime Minister would not have at hand but also that there are questions on notice and I would urge the member for Fairfax to consider lodging questions on notice and to direct them to the relevant minister. The content of our individual characters is more important than how much money we have.
