Senate voted on Press Freedoms – Matter of Public importance

Press Freedoms – Matter of Public importance Senator Sarah Hanson-Young
Today the Senate voted for an inquiry into press freedom and whistle-blower protection showing that there are some in our Parliament who care about a frank and fearless media.

This week’s arrest of four French journalists highlights how badly we need to rethink press freedom in Australia.

This inquiry will get to the bottom of what has gone on and ensure a future for a free press in Australia.”
