Turnbull quizzed on abuse redress

AAP logoAAP 15/09/2016

Malcolm Turnbull says the federal government is seeking to deliver a nationally consistent approach to redress for the survivors of institutional abuse.

Acting Labor leader Tanya Plibersek asked the prime minister in parliament on Thursday why he was refusing to set up a national scheme as recommended by the royal commission.

"The important thing for us to do is to acknowledge those wrongs, affirm that we believe them ... and then we have to ensure that redress is provided," Mr Turnbull said.
