'There's no testing going on' in Parliament says Jacqui Lambie

Australian politicians were "supposed to be leading by example" Ms Lambie says, admitting she's "really concerned" about what's happening in Canberra.

'There's no testing going on' in Parliament says Jacqui Lambie

Tasmanian senator Jacquie Lambie says she hasn't seen anyone be tested for coronavirus at Parliament House in Canberra from the very people who are "supposed to be leading by example".

"I am really concerned about the testing," Ms Lambie told Today this morning.

"I have walked into Parliament House, haven't seen one temperature test, haven't seen anything about testing, people getting in Comm. cars in the front and not the back."

When asked directly whether politicians were doing the wrong thing, Senator Lambie said she was "blown away" by what she's seen.

"We're crossing borders. There's no testing going on up here. We're supposed to be leading by example. No temperature testing, no nothing. It has blown me away. I've been thinking, 'Oh my goodness me'.

"That's a worry in itself especially when you have the most important man in the country which is your own Prime Minister up here and people are seeing him and there's no testing going on.

"It really bothers me."

Ms Lambie urged everyone to stick to social distancing measures even though some restrictions have been eased around the country.

"I think everyone has become really relaxed really quickly since Mother's Day and this is not the way to play the long game otherwise we'll end up back behind closed doors - the last thing the economy or anybody else needs," she said.

"Please, for people out there, it's not over by a long shot and you have to stick to the social distancing, stick to the rules and regulations otherwise we're going nowhere and we're going to be going round in circles."

Mr Frydenberg was delivering his ministerial statement when he began to cough, interrupting his speech six times as he sought to catch his breath.

He returned a negative result for COVID-19, sharing the news on Twitter on Wednesday morning.
