Independent Member for Clark, Andrew Wilkie, asked Prime Minister Anthony Albanese the following question. Please check against delivery. See video for full question and response.

“Prime Minister it’s 20 years since the invasion of Iraq on the basis of the preposterous lie that Saddam Hussein possessed an immense arsenal of weapons of mass destruction and was cooperating with al-Qaida.

“Prime Minister will you help prevent such unconscionable disasters in future by bringing Australia into line with countries like the US, UK, France, Germany and the Netherlands where declaring war is the prerogative of the parliament, not the Prime Minister?”
