Asylum Seekers

Mr KEENAN (Stirling) (15:07): My question is to the Prime Minister. In light of the fact that the government has just announced that we have had another boat arrival in Australia, carrying 68 passengers, does the Prime Minister still believe that this is another policy failure?

Ms GILLARD (LalorPrime Minister) (15:08): I thank the member for this question. It enables me to restate what I have said to the parliament frequently and during the course of this week. What addressing these issues requires is not only a government that is determined and guided by experts but also the opposition to not use its negativity to block legal changes that would make a difference. The member who asked the question put his hand up for more boats.

Mr Morrison interjecting

The SPEAKER: Order, the member for Cook!
