Trust in the federal government is at its lowest point since 2008, according to a survey by Griffith University and Transparency International. The decline in trust is linked to an increased belief that some federal MPs are corrupt, with 67 per cent of those surveyed favouring the creation of a federal anti-corruption body. Attorney-General Christian Porter says the government is examining existing anti-corruption arrangements and whether there is scope for them to be improved.
