MP asked to express more milk to avoid missing Parliament

ONE of the Government's up-and-coming frontbenchers Kelly O'Dwyer was asked whether she had considered expressing more breast milk to avoid missing her parliamentary duties.

The advice came from the office of Chief Government Whip Scott Buchholz, shortly after Ms O'Dwyer began breast feeding her newborn earlier this year.

The ABC understands Ms O'Dwyer was annoyed at the suggestion, which was delivered to her office, but both MPs have refused to comment, only saying "the issue has been resolved".

Under parliamentary rules, mothers who are breastfeeding get a proxy vote.

Ms O'Dwyer gave birth to her daughter, Olivia, in May but returned to work after a short break to resume as parliamentary secretary to the Treasurer.
