What is a public interest disclosure?
A public interest disclosure about a member of Parliament must relate to conduct of a member of Parliament acting in their official capacity (including as a minister).
The alleged conduct must be either:
- improper conduct (including corruption); or
- detrimental action taken against any person in reprisal for making a public interest disclosure.
You must have reasonable grounds to believe that there is improper conduct or detrimental action. You must show supporting facts and circumstances.
For a full explanation of what conduct can be reported, please download the PDF above.
Where else can I make a complaint or disclosure?
