The age old debate of Australia becoming a republic was revived during the week by the announcement of a new Parliamentary Friendship Group led by Federal Treasurer Joe Hockey and Labor co-chair ACT senator Katy Gallagher.

While some govenment frontbenchers have supported the move, many have questioned the timing as job opportunities and economic growth remain in dire need of attention. 

David Ross spoke to the Executive Direction of Australian for Constitutional Monarchy, Jai Martinkovits, and National Director of the Australian Republican Movement, Tim Mayfield in a live debate.
