“This was a decision that the prime minister didn’t need – at least at this stage – parliamentary approval for,” Mr Abbott told Sky News host Peta Credlin.

“He didn’t need to get the states on board.

“He made this decision, there is a sense in which he has cut through 40 years of obfuscation and delay.

“This is leadership of a high order from Scott Morrison and thank God we’ve had it.”
