According to the foreign news agency ‘Reuters’, Scott Morrison’s statement was reported in newspaper ‘The Australian’ and ‘Channel 10’ pictures and allegations of obscene acts of a male government official in the Parliament House by an unknown whistleblower.

In these photos, a man was seen doing obscene acts and making a video on the chair of a female member of parliament sitting alone.

A minister had said that a government official had been removed from his post.

Scott Morrison called the report “disgusting” and said he would talk to all government staff to remind them of their responsibilities.

Australia’s ruling Liberal / National Alliance has come under intense pressure in recent weeks over allegations of rape by members of the Liberal Party’s staff.

Hundreds of thousands of people rallied across the country last week on the issue, weakening Scott Morrison’s position in the polls.

He has been defending government measures to improve gender equality, but on Tuesday he expressed widespread dissatisfaction.

“I acknowledge that most Australians, especially women, believe that I did not listen to them and that it has hurt me a lot,” he told reporters in Canberra.

“We need to improve and fix our house,” he said.

Scott Morrison made some concrete suggestions to improve the culture of working in Parliament, stressing that changes would be announced in the coming weeks.
