A Liberal backbencher says she is ‘deeply disappointed’ by the lack of apology from former prime minister Scott Morrison about his secret ministry appointments.
Liberal MP supports Morrison censure
Liberal MP Bridget Archer has urged her party to draw a line in the sand when it comes to the secret ministerial appointments made by their former leader.
Former prime minister Scott Morrison is facing a rare censure motion in the House of Representatives for his decision to take on additional ministerial portfolios during the pandemic.
It is the first time the House has taken such action against a former prime minister.
Ms Archer said while the coalition government had made many good decisions to protect the nation during the pandemic, Mr Morrison’s actions were “entirely unnecessary”.
