Tanya Plibersek on war powers reform

Labor, War Powers Reform||

When asked whether Tanya Plibersek believed Parliament should be consulted before Australian troops are sent into armed conflict abroad, the Shadow Minister for Education and Shadow Minister for Women’s office said “this is a question for our Shadow Minister for Foreign Affairs, Penny Wong, and our Shadow Minister for Defence, Brendan O’Connor.”

The Shadow Minister for Defence Brendan O’Connor’s office told Michael West Media he did not believe parliament should be consulted before Australian troops are sent into armed conflict abroad. Shadow Minister for Foreign Affairs, Penny Wong, gave the same response as Brendan O’Connor, but added that an Albanese Labor government was committed to holding an inquiry into the issue.

Power to go to war rests with one man – Scott Morrison – is Parliament okay with that?
