PM urges calm
Prime Minister Scott Morrison is open to improvements to press freedom if they are warranted, but says he will act on the issue “calmly and soberly”.
A debate on freedom of the press followed police raids on News Corp and ABC journalists last week. “If there is suggestion or evidence or any analysis that reveals there is a need for further improvement of those (press freedom) laws, the Government is always open to that,” Mr Morrison said.
“I intend to proceed calmly and soberly and consultatively.”
