My question is to the Prime Minister. Can the Prime Minister inform the House which organisation will detain, house and process asylum seekers who are apprehended by Indonesian government patrols intercepting boats en route to Australia? Will the Prime Minister inform the House whether these people will remain in detention longer than the 90 days they would be detained in Australia and, if so, how much longer and where they will be resettled?
