Australian Government coat of arms

Prime Minister of Australia

The Hon Malcolm Turnbull MP


05 October 2017

  • We’ve seen real unanimity, both in terms of the decisions that we’ve taken and in the purpose and in the commitment to keep Australians safe. We’re committed to ensuring that our agencies have the tools, the legislative tools and the resources and the techniques to keep Australians safe and to respond and prevent terrorist incidents.

  • Prime Minister: Good morning. We’re here with the Minister for Justice, Michael Keenan and the Commissioner of the Australian Federal Police, Andrew Colvin.

  • FiFi Box: Oh, it is, it’s great to have you, Mr Turnbull. And you know, we do still want to reflect on the horrible tragedy that happened in Las Vegas. The world is still reeling from that. And a lot of the conversation yesterday was and always is after one of these tragic events about gun control and the NRA look immovable on this.

  • Sabra Lane: The federal government wants to introduce a new Commonwealth law to hold in question terrorism suspects for up to 14 days before they’re charged. Such a move was previously thought constitutionally difficult but it part of a renewed push towards nationally consistent pre-charge detention laws.
