Prime Minister Scott Morrison will be taking some time away with his family on the outskirts of Sydney.
He insists he will still be working in the lead up to the budget update, and keeping on top of the latest surge of coronavirus in Victoria.
“Jenny and the girls will be taking some time on the outskirts of Sydney, but given the changing critical situation we have in Victoria, I will not be joining them for that full time,” Mr Morrison said.
“I will also not be standing aside from the tasks I have all day. We have technology where I can be with them and continue to take briefings, calls and meetings in dealing with the situation whether it be Victoria or the other situations in the country.”
“Just because I am not standing in front of a camera it does not mean I am not behind my desk or doing what I need to do on a daily basis,” he said.
Morrison was criticised for being on holidays in Hawaii at the beginning of the Australian bushfires at the end of last year.Do you think Scott Morrison should be going on holidays?
