PARLIAMENT OF AUSTRALIA HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES Question QUESTIONS WITHOUT NOTICE Cabinet Secretary Tuesday, 3 May 2016 Clive Palmer – Member for Fairfax Responder Turnbull, Malcolm, MP Mr PALMER (Fairfax) (14:22): My question is to the Prime Minister. Innovation will not put food on the table. Innovation will not provide hospital beds, schools or warmth to a family on a cold night. Innovation in the Liberal Party means that only 42 per cent of funds raised are declared. Will the Prime Minister direct the Cabinet Secretary to answer serious questions over the use and raising of Liberal Party funds, and will the Prime Minister cause to be published audited accounts of the Liberal Party for the scrutiny of Liberal Party members and the public? Mr Nikolic interjecting— The SPEAKER: The member for Bass will cease interjecting. Mr Morrison interjecting— Mr Ewen Jones interjecting— The SPEAKER: The minister for immigration will cease interjecting, as will the member for Herbert. Mr TURNBULL (Wentworth—Prime Minister) (14:23): I thank the honourable member for his interest in innovation. Honourable members—all of us—would appreciate the importance of innovation. Of course, innovation does create jobs and does, in that sense, put bread on the table and produce prosperity and jobs. But I think all of us would appreciate it if the honourable member left innovation aside for a moment and focused on a very old-fashioned value—taking responsibility for the workers in Townsville. Mr Mitchell interjecting — The SPEAKER: The member for McEwen will cease interjecting.
