"I consider there to be some risk, particularly in light of the substantial size of the payments that appear to have been made by the Commonwealth to RHT Investments, that the High Court might conclude that there is a conflict between Mr Dutton's duty as a parliamentarian and his personal interests", Dr Donaghue wrote.

Australia's prime minister has said he will quit Parliament if his party wants a leadership ballot. But they failed to get the minimum 43 signatures that were required. The next scheduled party meeting is September 11.
