Federal Energy Minister Angus Taylor has today confirmed Scott Morrison’s government will reintroduce the “Ensuring Integrity Bill” to parliament in a bid to pass the tough new laws.

Mr Setka yesterday said the claims are “completely false” and confirmed he will remain in his position, despite being suspended from the Labor Party and facing expulsion.

"Everyone at that meeting knows that what has been reported is not what I said and the member who leaked these false allegations, for nothing more than political gain, should be the one who hangs their head in shame.

"There's no reason for me to resign.”

Maritime Union of Australia's WA secretary Christy Cain was at the meeting from which reports of Mr Setka's comments emerged, and supports his account.

“He certainly did not, under no circumstances, and I reiterate that - under no circumstances - denigrate Rosie Batty," Mr Cain told ABC.

Mr Setka will have a chance to defend himself when an expulsion motion is put forward by Labor leader Anthony Albanese at a meeting of the ALP national executive on July 5.

The move could have major implications for the Labor Party, which has received at least $11 million in donations from the CFMMEU since 2000.

He is also expected to meet with ACTU secretary Sally McManus.
