The big banks are out of control.

The banking royal commission has exposed a sick, rotten leadership culture in the big banks that have swindled working people and destroyed lives.

And it never would have happened if Sarah Henderson had her way.

Local victims of banking misconduct urged Ms Henderson to support a banking royal commission but she ignored them and instead voted 27 times to block it.

Now Ms Henderson is supporting a push to give banks more access to workers’ retirement savings.


“Proposing a royal commission is a policy cop out.”
— Sarah Henderson MP, Speech to Parliament – 23 May, 2017
