Australia says Facebook will lift its Australian news ban
Australia's government announced on Tuesday that Facebook agreed to lift its ban on Australians sharing news after a deal was struck on legislation that would make digital giants pay for journalism.Treasurer Josh Frydenberg and Facebook confirmed that they had reached agreement on amendments to proposed legislation that would make the social network and Google pay for news that they feature.
Shadow foreign secretary Lisa Nandy says that "real action" is needed from the government over issues like social care. "They [government] said they'd fix the social care crisis, they haven't. They said they'd level up communities like mine in Wigan, they absolutely haven't." Her comments come ahead of Tuesday's Queen's Speech in the House of Lords. "What we want to see from the Prime Minister today", said Ms Nandy "is a real plan to deliver on those things". Report by Thomasl.
