Scott Morrison announces royal commission into veteran suicides

Prime Minister Scott Morrison has announced a royal commission into veteran suicides.

A draft terms of reference will be released for consultation on Monday.

“We want this to be comprehensive,” Mr Morrison told reporters in Sydney.

The prime minister remains committed to establishing a permanent commission of inquiry into veteran suicides.

But the independent office will operate alongside a standalone inquiry.
