It has been 10 months since Prime Minister Scott Morrison promised an integrity commission with "real resources, real teeth", and Helen Haines is not letting him forget.
Cathy McGowan proposed the commission during her second term as Indi MP and her successor kept the pressure on this week.
Dr Haines said the Coalition stated it would introduce a bill to establish an integrity commission before the end of this year.
"November is two weeks away and no draft legislation has been put to us," she told Parliament.
"Australian voters, and my constituents in Indi, will not accept a limp lettuce serve - and nor will I."

She said the bill should be a strong model and include public hearings, public findings, and properly-funded anti-corruption investigative resources.
The Democracy 2025 report, released by the Museum of Australian Democracy this week, revealed just 21 per cent of Australians trust politicians, which was an all-time low.
Dr Haines said there was "no mystery about what people want from their elected representatives ... They want honesty, empathy, and delivery".
"They want parliamentarians who do what they say, who listen to them and who bring real change to their lives," she said.
The Greens also introduced their Parliamentary Standards Bill in the Senate on Thursday, which Senator Larissa Waters said was a binding, enforceable code of conduct for ministers, parliamentarians and staffers.
"The bill is a large step towards restoring public trust in democracy, but more needs to be done," she said.
