Liberal Senator Jim Molan has thrown his support behind the PM’s changes to the ministerial code of conduct.

Prime Minister Turnbull announced changes to the ministerial code of conduct in the wake of Barnaby Joyce’s scandal, including a blanket ban on Ministers engaging in sexual relations with their staff.

Senator Molan tells Ben Fordham it has “cleared the air” in Canberra.

“He is the leader, he sets the standards.

“I think the Prime Minister is taking tremendous responsibility.”

Senator Molan also spoke about his maiden speech to parliament on Wednesday, touching on topics such as global political tensions and cultural shifts within Australia.
