Question Time in federal parliament

By AAP Newswire

WHAT WE LEARNED

- Energy Minister Angus Taylor says a document about travel expenses, which Labor says is a "forgery", was downloaded by his office from the Sydney City Council website.

- Labor has questioned this and sought to suspend parliament over the issue, but did not have the numbers.

WHAT THE GOVERNMENT WANTED TO SPIN

- Stable and certain budget management delivers for all Australians.

WHAT LABOR WANTED TO TALK ABOUT

- The government obsesses about Labor while ignoring key issues.

WHAT THEY SAID

"Is the reason his government won't commit to a bipartisan approach with Labor on the drought because he cannot even manage a bipartisan approach with the National Party?" - Labor leader Anthony Albanese.

"No." - Prime Minister Scott Morrison.

"As he listens to the Yoda of the time, Kevin Rudd, all he can hear is: 'Higher taxes, he must, higher taxes, you must'." - Morrison to shadow treasurer Jim Chalmers.
