Qld parliament debates corruption laws

Sonia Kohlbacher

Queensland politicians will on Wednesday resume debate over a series of reforms aimed at stamping out corruption within local government.

A raft of reforms proposed by the Labor government on the back of an ongoing Crime and Corruption Commission probe into dishonourable activity within councils across the state is expected to pass this week.

The Liberal National Party says it will vote against a clamp down on donations from property developers to political parties, but the state government has the numbers to get through.

Other measures include a code of conduct for councillors that would bring them into line with MPs and government staffers, and a councillor conduct tribunal to hear and rule on misconduct allegations.
