But it’s since been revealed Dr Leigh may have been ‘speaking out of school.’

Canberra Correspondent Michael Pachi said on 3AW Drive that came as news to some members of the press gallery.

Interestingly, a transcript of Dr Leigh’s interview hadn’t arrived to media inboxes as normal.

‘From what it seems, neither Shadow Treasurer Chris Bowen or Bill Shorten has outlined that policy,’ he said.

Dr Leigh’s office has since re-confirmed the Labor politicians comments.
