this morning between two tunnelling sites at Concord.

The Turnbull Government is demanding urgent answers from vehicle manufacturers about their program to recall vehicles which include potentially faulty Takata airbags, following the recent tragic death of a motorist in Sydney, alleged by NSW police to be a Takata airbag deploying incorrectly.

The tragic recent death of a motorist at Cabramatta in Sydney is a powerful reminder to Australians to check whether they own a vehicle equipped with potentially faulty Takata airbags.

I express my sympathy and condolences to the man’s friends and family following this sad loss.
