Nationals senator Barry O’Sullivan released on 23 November details of his private members’ bill that calls for a commission of inquiry into the banking sector. Its release comes as efforts to have its tabling thwarted intensify. Former prime minister John Howard described the bill as "rank socialism", while Treasurer Scott Morrison met with the chairman of the big four banks, suggesting the need for them to come up with reforms that might reduce the impetus for an inquiry.
