Julian Leeser MP, Chair of the Indigenous Affairs Committee talking about how Indigenous Affairs Committee tables its report on food pricing and food security in remote communities. The report finds that food costs are very high in many remote communities, reinforcing long-held concerns regarding food security for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians who are living remotely, however it did not find evidence of systemic price-gouging taking place in remote community stores.

Maree McCabe, CEO of Dementia Australia discussing how they have welcomed the announcement this week by the Australian Government of an additional $132.2 million investment in its response to the Aged Care Royal Commission’s recommendations on COVID-19.
