I just have a question for the minister, in clarification of why the minister and the government believe this particular part of the legislation is important. You referred to taking into consideration those who had suffered torture and trauma. I would just like to know whether that includes the torture and trauma of being indefinitely detained in an offshore detention centre.

The CHAIRMAN: The question is that item 14 of schedule 1 stand as printed.
