Why not ban political donations from property developers?
Ms SANDELL (Melbourne) — My question is to the Minister for Planning. Given that Victoria's political donation laws are some of the slackest in the Western world, with former Speaker Ken Coghill recently describing us as 'lagging severely compared with most contemporary jurisdictions', can the planning minister explain to the Victorian people why he recently told the Property Council of Victoria why he will not ban political donations from property developers?
Ms SANDELL (Melbourne) — In that case, given that we will not know about the disclosure of political donations from property developers until next February, will the Minister for Planning tell us how much personally was received by himself for his campaign or others in the government from property developers?
Honourable members interjecting.
The SPEAKER — Order! Government members! The Minister for Housing, Disability and Ageing is warned. I rule the member's question out of order.
