QUESTION: POLITICAL DONATIONS

Mr HIBBINS (Prahran) — My question is to the Premier. I refer to the June 2016 Ombudsman'sReport on Recommendations, which states the following Ombudsman's recommendation:

That the Victorian government consider …

a.     whether there should be restrictions on donations to candidates and political parties by property developers;

b.     whether details of all donations to a candidate or political party should be required to be published on a publicly available register within 30 days of the relevant election —

is under consideration. So I ask: has the government considered those recommendations, and if so, what is its response?
