Questions without Notice
My question is to the Minister for Immigration, Citizenship and Multicultural Affairs. The government initially said that no legislation was possible, following the High Court decision, but days later the government has introduced legislation, without the full High Court judgement having been handed down. Why is it not possible for the government to implement a preventive detention regime which would have prevented these 84 hardcore criminals being released into the community and creating a risk to the safety of Australians?
