Hansard, Kevin Rudd: My question is to the Prime Minister. I refer to the Prime Minister’s policy announcement just before question time, outlining his response to the crisis of child abuse in indigenous communities, as revealed in the report Little Children Are Sacred. I indicate to the Prime Minister that I will do whatever I can to work with him to address this response to the crisis of child abuse in Australian indigenous communities.


AAP report: Labor’s leader Kim Beazley said he supported the Government’s decision to bring in elite SAS forces which have now taken control of the Tampa.

Just saying.
