‘Q&A in Honiara’: Prime Minister slams Labor’s ABC solution to Solomon Islands
Prime Minister Scott Morrison has slammed Labor’s latest defence proposal.
Labor’s pacific policy includes a significant boost to Australian broadcasting in both the Pacific and the broader Indo-Pacific.
The proposal also lists an increase to the aid budget, more money for climate change adaptation, and an overhaul of Pacific Island worker programs in Australia.
“They think the way to solve the problem in the Solomon Islands is to send in the ABC!” Mr Morrison told Ben Fordham.
“It’s farcical. Their answer is to have Q&A in Honiara.”
