Migration Legislation Amendment (Regional Processing and Other Measures) Bill 2012; In Committee
I move amendment (1) on revised sheet 7269:
(1) Page 2 (after line 2), after clause 3, insert:
4 Application of amendments
(a) the amendments (including any repeals) made by this Act have effect only for a period of 24 months from the commencement of this Act; and
(b) any Act amended by this Act has effect after that period of 24 months as if the amendments had not been made.
This amendment puts a sunset clause in this inhumane, unlawful, illogical, cruel piece of legislation. I would like to know what the minister's response is.
