Defence Connect Podcast Network

In this episode of the Defence Connect Podcast, Julian Hill MP, chair of the Defence subcommittee of the joint standing committee on foreign affairs, defence and trade, joins host Steve Kuper to unpack the work of the subcommittee over 2023.

The pair begin by discussing the oversight role of parliamentary committees and the valuable work they do working with parliamentary decisionmakers and the public service to represent the interests of constituents.

They also discuss the War Powers legislation currently before the Parliament and the importance of having Parliament involved in the decision-making process, particularly off the back of recent revelations about the lead-up to Australia’s involvement in the 2003 invasion of Iraq.

Finally, the pair discuss the focal points of the Defence Annual Report 2022–23, for which submissions are now open and encouraged.
