Missing MPs won't happen again: Cormann

AAP logoAAP 11/09/2016

Cabinet minister Mathias Cormann is confident coalition MPs won't be sneaking off to escape Canberra early at the end of this parliamentary sitting week.

Labor exploited the government's slim majority in the lower house when it used the absence of several coalition MPs at the end of the previous sitting week to win three procedural votes and almost secure a majority for its call for a royal commission into bank misconduct.

"I think that all those who missed a vote ... have learnt their lesson well and truly," Senator Cormann told ABC Radio.
