#BREAKING - Sky News can reveal Liberal MP Bridget Archer was hauled into meeting with the Prime Minister after she crossed the floor.

I'm told it was a 'frank exchange' where Mr Morrison wanted to know what was going on, what led her to the decision and "what the problem was"
The Treasurer and Minister for Women Marise Payne were on hand for the conversation after the vote.

It hasn't deterred Ms Archer - who maintains her right to cross the floor on anything at anytime - "my vote can never be taken for granted."
Asked by @SkyNewsAust about the tone of this meeting - The Prime Minister says: "very positive, and very encouraging. Bridget and I are very close colleagues...

Was it frank?
"That is not how I would describe it at all - it was a very warm, friendly and supportive meeting."
Labor Leader Anthony Albanese: "Bridget Archer stood up to for a national integrity commission which the govt says was its own policy. Why is it that Scott Morrison could take action against Bridget Archer but is silent about George Christensen?"
