Labor may support inquiry into Newman Government
LABOR has indicated it will support a Palmer United Party (PUP) push for a federal Senate inquiry into the Newman Government.
PUP senator Glenn Lazarus put forward a motion yesterday but it was rejected on procedural grounds.
The motion is likely to be considered again in October, but would need support from Labor and the Greens to proceed.
The wide-ranging inquiry could examine the use of Commonwealth funds, the appointment of officials, and possible conflicts of interest.
Previously non-committal on the motion, Labor has now indicated it would not block it.
