I am deeply disturbed by what has been aired in tonight’s Four Corners report.

I have been steadfast in my support for the IGADF Inquiry which is investigating allegations about the conduct of Australia’s Special Forces in Afghanistan over the period 2005 to 2016.

Where serious allegations are raised, Australians would rightly expect they are thoroughly examined.

The Chief of the Defence Force has advised me that the IGADF will soon provide a report on the findings of the Afghanistan Inquiry.
