The Guardian | World | Australia | Australian Politics on December 1, 2015: Mal Brough Apologises to Parliament For Statement About 60 Minutes.

Mal Brough apologises to parliament for statement about 60 Minutes

Shalailah Medhora

Brough is clearly attempting to neutralise the question time attack that will come inevitably at 2pm. I don’t think this apology will cut it. It’s quite clearly weasel words, and generally weasel words don’t cut it.

The Brough statement just now on indulgence

Brough attempts to clean up yesterday

The man of the hour, Mal Brough has just entered the chamber to retract what he said yesterday. I didn’t catch the precise formulation but I’ll chase it.
Standing orders in the House of Representatives should be amended to allow MPs to breastfeed or bottle feed babies in the Chamber, a new committee report has recommended. The report recommends that standing order 257 be amended to note that infants who require care by sitting members are not defined as “visitors” in the Chamber. Provisions to allow MPs a proxy vote when caring for infants so that they do not need to physically be in the Chamber, will continue.
A NSW Police spokesman is now briefing on the raids conducted in western Sydney this morning. The raid relates to information supplied concerning a threat “to a police station in the greater Sydney area.” No further particulars are forthcoming. The investigation is ongoing.
Interesting to observe, just like yesterday, no-one in the government is explicitly defending Brough in this censure motion. Government folks have also been absent from the radio and television this morning – which suggests to me there’s no definitive line on Brough from the prime minister’s office as yet.

Labor opens the Brough bombardment early

The other event underway as we go live this morning is a police raid in western Sydney. Police have this morning raided at least one home in Merrylands. A statement from NSW police said the searches were being conducted under the powers of firearms prohibition orders “which were previously served on a number of men linked to the addresses being searched”. Police did not confirm the raids were related to counter-terrorism, but the ABC reported the raid was in the same street where raids took place in October following the shooting of police employee Curtis Cheng. The house in Lockwood Street is understood to have been raided several times before.

Super governance bill – out the back door
