Statement - Inaccurate reporting in News Limited newspapers
An article in today's News Limited newspapers titled "G-G's bid to relieve flood pain backfires" (page 5 of The Daily Telegraph and syndicated in some other states) makes certain claims about the Governor-General's involvement in Australia's response to flooding in Solomon Islands. These claims are factually incorrect and without foundation.
