The government’s official press release has since been removed. According to Australian journalist Alice Workman, the story description was inserted in error.
“The description of the story was erroneously inserted into the news story on the department’s website on March 21, 2022 (during Morrison’s administration). The story description was not provided or approved by the studio. It was an internal error,” said an Arts spokesman.
