We welcome the High Court’s decision.

Our commitment to transparency and accountability has been upheld in the highest court in Australia.

One of the first acts of the newly-elected Palaszczuk Government in 2015 was to reduce political donation thresholds.

This was further enhanced by introducing, and leading the country in, creating a real time disclosure system for political donations.

In contrast, the LNP has wanted to keep their donations a secret.

They have done everything they possibly could to keep them a secret, including using the Commonwealth Parliament and going to the highest court to hide donations.

But the jig is up.

We call on Morrison and Frecklington to disclose all of their donations.


Acting Attorney-General and Minister for Justice
The Honourable Stirling Hinchliffe
