Actioning needed for plan against corruption

The Minister for Justice and Attorney General says there is already a National Action Plan against corruption in place, which now needs actioning.

The protection of whistle-blowers and the establishment of an Independent Commission Against Corruption (ICAC) are two important aspects that need to be addressed.

The Deputy Prime Minister says the simple reality is that all corrupt conduct involves more than one person so if people are not afraid to be whistle-blowers then it will be a quicker and cheaper way to deal with corruption.
