British MPs call on Australia to review its actions in Norfolk

From , 3:02 pm on 2 September 2016

A cross party delegation of British MPs has called on Australia to review its decision to remove the autonomy of Norfolk Island.

Norfolk's limited self-government was removed a year ago and Canberra replaced it in July with a regional council within New South Wales.

The changes have infuriated many on Norfolk Island who now want to change the Australian politicians' mind.

The MPs, two from Britain's ruling Conservative party and one from Labour, were invited by to Norfolk by the People for Democracy group, which pleaded with Westminster not to forget about the island.

Conservative MP Andrew Rosindell spoke with Koroi Hawkins this morning in Norfolk before their departure from the island.
