Week 38: Why a Code of Conduct is so important in Parliament House

North Sydney has been in the media this week as one of a handful of Independent federal electorates calling for a code of conduct to be introduced in Parliament House.

Having spent 35 years in business and the not-for-profit sector, I was shocked to find out that there is no overarching parliamentary code. This must change if we are to fix the toxic workplace culture that was highlighted in the Jenkins [email protected] report.

As the highest officeholders in our land, federal politicians should be held to the highest standards. I am proud to be championing the introduction of a binding code of conduct for all federal parliamentarians and their staff as North Sydney's federal representative.

Also this week, I had the privilege of attending Willoughby Council's citizenship ceremony as Mayor Tanya Taylor's guest, attending the Northbridge Rotary Club's Pride of Workmanship awards, and speaking with the Castlecrag Progress Association about our shared ambitions for the years ahead.

As always, I remain committed to collaboration, coordination, and this community. The issues we face as a community are complex and there is no silver bullet. But by working openly and constructively with experts, industry, our community and others across Australia, I am confident that we will achieve the progress we want to see.
