Australian PM reacts to reports of sex acts in parliament

Reading Time: < 1 minute

Australia’s Prime Minister Scott Morrison on Tuesday acknowledged mounting dissatisfaction with his handling of a series of allegations about the mistreatment of women in politics, as he vowed to drive cultural change.

Morrison’s comments came just hours after The Australian newspaper and Channel 10 reported allegations and images from an anonymous whistleblower about lewd behaviour by male government staff in Parliament House. They included the men filming themselves performing solo sex acts, including on the desk of a female Member of Parliament.

Morrison described the report as “disgusting” and said he would speak with all government staff members on Tuesday to remind them of their responsibilities.
