Dutton steps up case for medevac axing

Caption: June 20, 2019. Home Affairs Minister Peter Dutton in Sydney says the medevac legislation is a "deeply flawed process" and Labor needs to back the government to repeal it. Mr Dutton says "advocate" doctors could be putting asylum seekers' names forward to be considered for medical transfer even if they haven't consented to it. "It's inconceivable that a sovereign government doesn't have the right to say who is going to come to our country and don't have the right for those people to return back once that medical advice has been provided," Mr Dutton says. The medevac legislation came into force in March with the support of Labor and the crossbench and against the will of the government. (AAP Video/Michael Wade)
