Australia: 'Golden visa' scrapped, former PM calls it quits

From Nine To Noon, 9:45 am on 24 January 2024

Australia correspondent Chris Niesche joins Kathryn to talk about the Australian government's decision to put an end to the so-called 'Golden visa' that enabled wealthy migrants to live in the country.

Critics of the scheme believed it was open to abuse, while the government said it was "delivering poor economic outcomes".

Meanwhile the scope of an inquiry into how the justice system handles sexual violence has been announced and former Prime Minister Scott Morrison calls it quits.
