Scott Morrison rejects AMA plea to bring children from Nauru to Australia

Paul Bauert, a Darwin-based paediatrician, was in parliament on Thursday lobbying MPs from all sides to try and build support for a change in policy. Bauert has assessed medical reports for children on Nauru involved in recent court proceedings to secure medical transfers to Australia. He said he had assessed eight or nine cases in the past six weeks, and seven children were critically ill.
