In conversation: Senator the Hon. David Johnston discusses the challenges a Coalition Government would face in Defence

On 29 April 2013, Shadow Defence Minister Senator David Johnston gave a lecture to the Lowy Institute on Australia's defence challenges in the lead-up to the release of the 2013 Defence White Paper.

Following the lecture, Senator Johnston had a chat with James Brown, the Lowy Institute's Military Fellow. The discussion ranges from the current state of the Defence budget, to the Coalition's procurement priorities and the impact of the US 'pivot' towards Asia on Australia's national security strategy.
