The incorrect notification withdrawn – as I had said this morning it was never a federal govt decision. Will ask to have an inquiry as to how and who in CAA put out such a notification. All bureaucracy should know that Federal Govt means Cabinet! This issue never discussed! pic.twitter.com/5cpbWJb5rP
