Liberal, Nationals MPs move to prevent $10,000 cash ban (

A political backlash is threatening to halt a Morrison government plan to outlaw cash payments over $10,000 in a fight over the cost for consumers and companies of forcing a shift to electronic transactions.

Ministers are facing a torrent of criticism from Liberal and Nationals MPs as well as party members who believe the crackdown on cash is a breach of the government's stated belief in the free market.

The divisions set up a clash in the Senate that could veto the bill unless the government acts on demands from its own MPs to abandon the reform or send it back to department officials for extensive changes.
