Greens Deputy Leader, Adam Bandt MP, has criticised the House of Representatives for wasting time with a politicised debate about Senator Conroy instead of focussing on a far more pressing issue, the death of refugee Reza Berati on Manus Island.
"Parliament has yet again missed the point," said Mr Bandt.
"A man has been killed while in our care. We should be debating why this happened and how we can stop it happening again, not wasting time in another Liberal/Labor tit-for-tat."
"Where is Parliament's moral compass? Today's politicised theatre was a waste of everyone's time."
