Dr Stone asked the Minister representing the Minister for Immigration and Citizenship, in writing, on 10 September 2009:

In respect of unauthorised arrival of people on Christmas Island: how many for 2008 - 09 have (a) been registered with the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees in Indonesia, and (b) previously held a Temporary Protection Visa in Australia.


Mr McClelland (Attorney-General) —The Minister for Immigration and Citizenship has provided the following answer to the honourable member’s question:

(a)   The Department does not have any aggregated statistics on this. It would be highly resource intensive to review all individual client files in order to compile this data.

(b)   During 2008-2009, four Irregular Maritime Arrivals have been identified as having previously held Temporary Protection visas (TPV) in Australia.
