STATEMENT - ABC
26 September 2018
Having met with the Prime Minister this afternoon, I have asked the Secretary of the Department of Communications and the Arts to undertake an inquiry to establish the facts in relation to today’s media reports surrounding the ABC.
The Secretary will report his findings to me as soon as possible.
It is important for the community to have confidence in the independence of the ABC.
Authorised by Senator the Hon Mitch Fifield, Liberal Party of Australia, Parliament House, Canberra.
