Labor may support inquiry into Newman Government

LABOR has indicated it will support a Palmer United Party (PUP) push for a federal Senate inquiry into the Newman Government.

PUP senator Glenn Lazarus put forward a motion yesterday but it was rejected on procedural grounds.

The motion is likely to be considered again in October, but would need support from Labor and the Greens to proceed.

Previously non-committal on the motion, Labor has now indicated it would not block it.
