Minister Matt Keogh vows more help for Australian veterans

Veterans have hit out at Anthony Albanese’s decision to move the Veterans’ Affairs portfolio from Cabinet, calling it a “downgrade” and “deeply concerning”.

While welcoming the Government’s additional $500 million funding commitment, the Returned & Services League on Thursday said many veterans were “angered” by the move.

“The RSL will be vigilant in ensuring that this funding commitment is delivered and will continue to press the government to resolve the crucial issues faced by veterans and their families,” RSL Australia president Greg Melick said.

Matt Keogh, the new Veterans’ Affairs and Defence Personnel Minister, told The West Australian that there was “certainly no delineation” by the PM.
