Google Australia's managing director Mel Silva has told a Senate committee the tech giant could remove its search engine from Australia if a code forcing the companies to negotiate payments to news media companies goes ahead. The threat comes as Google and Facebook are fighting against legislation currently before the parliament that would force the digital platforms to enter into negotiations with news media companies for payment for content. Prime minister Scott Morrison says his government will not respond to threats. 'Australia makes our rules for things you can do in Australia,' he says. 'And that’s how things work here in Australia and people who want to work with that, in Australia, you're very welcome'
