Statement by the Secretary of Defence, Dr Ian Watt, AO

Notwithstanding media speculation in this morning’s Canberra Times, I advise that I have no intention to resign from my position when Air Chief Marshal Houston retires, whenever that might be.

I am 18 months into a five-year contract and enjoying the challenges of being the Secretary of Defence.
