Clare O’Neil: I have confidence in our ability to manage challenges

 

Clare O’Neil MP – MINISTER FOR HOME AFFAIRS & MINISTER FOR CYBER SECURITY

In her address to the National Press Club of Australia on 9 December 2022 Australia’s Minister for Home Affairs and Minister for Cyber security Clare O’Neil  laid out the Albanese Government’s vision for how Home Affairs will rise up to the challenges facing our country.

In response to a pointed question by The Australian’s Ben Packham, about the reported concern by the Indian government about “…the rise of Sikh separatism in Australia…”, Minister Clare O’Neil said – “I’m not going to comment on the specifics of the reporting that you have done, Ben, and I think those have been very good news stories. I don’t think it’s helpful for me to use a national stage to pick out one community group and make comments about them, but if I could just say we’ve got a number of people in this room who have been involved in our counter-terror efforts over a long period of time. Their work has been extraordinary. The extent to which they have foiled plots and kept us safe is an enormous national service, and I have got a lot of confidence in the maturity of those arrangements to manage conflicts and situations that will arise. ”
