Word from The Hill: Peter Dutton puts nuclear power on opposition's agenda

As well as her interviews with politicians and experts, Politics with Michelle Grattan includes “Word from The Hill”, where she discusses the news with members of The Conversation politics team.

In this podcast, politics editor Amanda Dunn and Michelle canvass Tuesday’s decision by the Reserve Bank to raise the cash rate again, by 50 basis points to 1.85%.

They also talk about Peter Dutton’s announcement that the opposition will inquire into nuclear power, in a contentious decision as it looks to crafting an energy policy for the next election. Most immediately, the Coalition will vote against the government’s legislation for its 43% 2030 emissions reduction target. The vote in the House of Representatives will be this week.

Meanwhile, after Anthony Albanese’s weekend Garma speech, attention this week also turned to the proposed referendum to put into the constitution an Indigenous “Voice” to parliament.
