The prime minister, Sir Allen Kemakza, says the newly appointed task force on the proposed foreign intervention is already working on a submission from Malaita leaders.

Sir Allen says the submission is based on the outcome of a meeting between Malaitan political leaders and former militants.

He says the submission has reservations about the proposal.
