Open Parliament

Download Full Policy

We will disclose Parliamentary expenses and make Parliament open by default.

The Liberal Party was the first to require its members to proactively disclose travel and hospitality expenses. It is time for all Parliamentarians to do the same. We will make government more accountable by requiring all Parliamentarians to disclose their expenses in a common and detailed manner, each quarter.

We will end the secrecy surrounding the Board of Internal Economy – the group responsible for regulating spending by Members of Parliament. Except in rare cases requiring confidentiality, meetings of this group will be open to the public.
