Legislative Council: Thursday, November 16, 2023


Immigrant Detention

The Hon. J.M.A. LENSINK (14:53): Supplementary question: is the minister aware of whether this is a topic listed for any of the ministerial council agendas across various governments?

The Hon. K.J. MAHER (Minister for Aboriginal Affairs, Attorney-General, Minister for Industrial Relations and Public Sector) (14:54): I thank the honourable member for her question. Given the High Court only handed down the decision within recent days, I am not aware if this is a topic on any ministerial council meetings, but certainly, as I say, I understand that there will be legislation introduced imminently in federal parliament.
