MEDIA RELEASE Senator the Hon. Robert Hill Leader of the Government in the Senate Minister for Defence

 

08 Feb 2002 MIN 46/02

An article appearing today in the Herald Sun, Hobart Mercury, Courier Mail and the Daily Telegraph stating that General Peter Cosgrove will be the next Australian Defence Force Chief is pure speculation.

 

Any decision about appointing a Chief of the Australian Defence Force or Chief of the Army is made by the Federal Government. The assessment process has not even started and there are a number of strong candidates.
