Australian prime minister Scott Morrison has issued a formal apology in Parliament to people who have experienced sexual harassment, sexual assault or bullying while working for the government.
'I particularly want to acknowledge Brittany Higgins', Morrison said to the former Liberal staffer who alleged that she was sexually assaulted in a minister's office in 2019. Higgins was watching in the House of Representatives. Opposition leader Anthony Albanese also offered an apology on behalf of the Labor party.
