“These are matters my good friend and colleague [Employment Minister] Michaelia Cash has addressed in detail.” said the Senator.
“It’s not something that we are attracted to.”
The Senator also stated “Arguably the Turnbull Government is providing the strongest investment ever in addressing domestic violence,”.
