Part of Commonwealth Development Corporation Bill – in a Public Bill Committee at 4:15 pm on 6 December 2016.

Alert me about debates like this

This new clause regards prohibitions on the sectors in which the CDC can invest. I have chosen four issues about which I think there are questions—and questions have been asked.

I have specified the for-profit education sector, the for-profit health sector, the real estate sector and mineral extraction. [Interruption.] I notice the Minister disappearing for a moment; I will allow him a moment to use the bathroom.
