Statement from the Shadow Attorney-General

That Federal Labor Leader Anthony Albanese is considering appointing former Premier Steve Bracks to head the much needed review into the culture of political corruption that exists in the Victorian Labor Party is deeply concerning and must be ruled out.

Steve Bracks is personally connected with many current senior figures of the ALP which makes it impossible for him to be objective in any review.

Further, as Chairman of Maurice Blackburn he is hopelessly conflicted. The Justice Legislation Miscellaneous Amendments Bill 2019 currently before the Legislative Council will, if passed, enrich its directors and owners.

It would be wrong for Steve Bracks to accept any appointment to review the ALP while he or members of his law firm are actively lobbying for the passage of legislation that will have a significant financial windfall for class action litigators such as Maurice Blackburn.
