So you have reduced the length of time parliament has to scrutinise so that parliament can adequately scrutinise the designation as put on the table? What a load of poliwonk. Can the minister please answer my original question. Appropriate accommodation is outlined in the Houston report as one of the conditions that would be required for the facilities in which refugees are detained. Do army tents, in the view of the minister and the government, fit into the appropriate accommodation criteria?
