Deal struck on MP citizenship disclosures

November 13, 2017

George Brandis said after a difficult time, it was time for all MPs to act with integrity.

Members of the federal parliament will need to publicly disclose family history and any steps taken to renounce dual citizenships under a motion expected to go to the Senate on Monday.

The federal government has agreed to Labor's request for a December 1 disclosure date and for more details to be disclosed.

It's understood the deal was negotiated between cabinet minister Mathias Cormann and Opposition Leader Bill Shorten.
