Turn­bull Q& A im­passe

Townsville Bulletin - - NEWS -

COM­MU­NI­CA­TIONS Min­is­ter Malcolm Turn­bull is still con­sid­er­ing whether to defy the Prime Min­is­ter and ap­pear on the ABC’s Q& A show next week.

Agriculture Min­is­ter Barnaby Joyce was sched­uled to ap­pear on the pro­gram last night but with­drew af­ter Tony Ab­bott told him he wanted front­benchers to shun the show while an in­de­pen­dent re­view was held over the de­ci­sion to give Zaky Mal­lah air time last month. But Mr Turn­bull yes­ter­day re­fused to com­ment or with­draw for next week.

Malcolm Turn­bull.
