The 2015 COAG agenda will address the problem of violence against women at a national level.
To advise COAG on these actions and other initiatives, I have established an Advisory Panel on violence against women.
I am pleased that retiring Victorian Police Commissioner Mr Ken Lay APM, and the 2015 Australian of the Year, Ms Rosie Batty, have agreed to be the founding members of the panel. Further announcements regarding membership of the panel will be made in due course.
