Australian PM Malcolm Turnbull

Australian PM Malcolm Turnbull on Thursday said ministers will be banned from sexual relationships with staff under a new code of conduct to be enacted in the wake of his deputy admitting to an extramarital affair with a staffer. 

"Ministers, regardless of whether they are married or single, must not engage in sexual relations with staff," Turnbull told reporters in Canberra.

"In 2018, it is not acceptable for a minister to have a sexual relationship with somebody who works for them. It is a very bad workplace practice.
