Dutton expected to face no confidence vote over au pair saga

Home Affairs Minister Peter Dutton is expected to face a barrage of challenges, as parliament returns for the first time since his ill-fated leadership attempt.

Labor and the Greens are trying to push through a no confidence motion, after discovering Minister Dutton granted visas for two au pairs in 2015 and allegedly mislead the house over the saga.

He will also be asked to explain his links to two publicly funded child care centres.


The Home Affairs Minister has hit back, saying he’ll reveal details about visa requests from Labor MPs if pressed on the matter.

A Senate inquriy investigating Mr Dutton’s use of ministerial discretion has received a second submission from the former Border Force boss Roman Quaedvlieg.

Last week, Mr Quaedvlieg accused Peter Dutton’s chief of staff of asking him to help a mate with an immigration issue.

In his new submission, that will be revealed today, Mr Quaedvlieg is expected to double down on this view.
