Keneally backs medevac laws after Dutton claims Labor may help repeal bill

Keneally told Guardian Australia that Labor supports medevac because “it provides a way for people who are sick to get the care they need and ensures minister has final discretion as to who can come” but did not rule out consideration of amendments.

“What Mr Dutton’s comments today misconstrued is that second aspect of the legislation – he did not recognise the fact the parliament explicitly ensured the minister retained that discretion.
