WHAT LABOR WANTED TO TALK ABOUT

When is the prime minister going to show women, voters and Tasmania the respect they deserve.

WHAT THEY SAID

"Will the prime minister finally tell the Australian people why Malcolm Turnbull is no longer the prime minister of Australia?" - Labor leader Bill Shorten.

"I think it's time for the leader of the opposition to get over it." - Prime Minister Scott Morrison.

"When will the prime minister apologise to Australians for running a protection racket over bad behaviour and voting against the (banking) royal commission 26 times?" - Shadow treasurer Chris Bowen.

"The problem I didn't see, and I should have seen, the problem that also needed to be addressed was the hurt that people were feeling as a result of the banking and financial sector. I regret not having done that earlier for that reason." - Morrison on the royal commission.
