Minister for Employment and Workplace Relations Minister for the Arts

Australian Labor Party

Total Interests: 46

Latest alteration: Travel or hospitality - 15/05/24

Source: Statement of Registrable Interests - this contains interests declared as at 11/04/22 and alterations since then.  

This statement contains interests declared as at the dissolution of the previous parliament on 11/04/22 and any alterations since then, including new interests and amendments and deletions to existing interests. The date of an alteration is when it was declared to the register, not when the change occurred.

Open Politics has amended the wording and formatting of some MPs' and senators' declared interests to improve readability or to correct mistakes. To notify us of an error or omission, contact us.

Breach: Burke broke interest disclosure rules by failing to declare free tickets to a Paul McCartney concert and Foo Fighters concert in 2023 within the required 28 days. Consequently he's breached the ministerial code of conduct, which requires ministers to be compliant with the interests register.
