SENATE STOPS SCOTT MORRISON’S ATTEMPT AT ABC INTERFERENCE
MICHELLE ROWLAND MP
In another humiliation for Scott Morrison, the Senate today backed a Labor motion to suspend the wasteful and duplicative Liberal-led inquiry into ABC and SBS complaints handling.

Political interference in, and intimidation of, the national broadcasters must not be tolerated, which is why the Senate voted in support of the request made by ABC Chair Ita Buttrose AC OBE on 14 November 2021 to defend the independence of the ABC.

Australians trust the ABC and SBS, but they can’t trust the Morrison-Joyce Government.

After eight long years of ideologically motivated cuts and attacks on the national broadcasters under the Liberals, only an Albanese Labor Government will stand up for the ABC and the SBS.
