PM announces ‘Home Affairs’ portfolio, modeled on UK Home Office than US Homeland Security

Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull has announced the creation of a ‘Home Affairs’ portfolio in a major shake-up of Australia’s national security architecture.

The change is part of the most significant reform to national intelligence and domestic security arrangements in more than 40 years, he says.

‘When it comes to our nation’s security, we must stay ahead of the threats against us,’ Mr Turnbull told reporters in Canberra on Tuesday.

More to come.
