Labor leader Bill Shorten has called on Prime Minister Scott Morrison to extend the banking royal commission’s current reporting deadline. The commission, which is headed by former High Court Judge Kenneth Hayne, is due to present an interim report in October, and to present its final report by 1 February 2019. Shorten, who was speaking on 4 September, says the victims of banking misconduct must be given more opportunity to have their grievances heard, and that as well as giving the commission more time, it should also travel to regional centres.
