Prime minister reveals plan to change laws to allow killing of ‘a broader range’ of Isis combatants. Follow all the developments live …
Mike Kelly, the new Labor member for Eden Monaro, is making his first speech – well this time around. He lost that seat in 2013 and won it back, breaking its run as the bellwether seat. A former army lawyer, Kelly said during the intervening period he worked for Bill Shorten as a defence advisor. He echoed Shorten’s response to the counter terrorism measures announced by Malcolm Turnbull earlier today.
He also said he worked closely with Tony Abbott’s office on national security – including with his former chief of staff Peta Credlin. He praised her as a strong intelligent woman and noted that perhaps that’s why some in the Coalition had a problem with her.
