Explanatory Memorandum - Migration Legislation Amendment (Restoration of Human Rights) Bill 2006

Senator Bartlett

 

This bill seeks to remove the unfair provisions which were imposed by the Migration Legislation Amendment Act (No. 2) 1998 (the Act) which prevented the Human Rights and Equal Opportunities Commission (HREOC) from giving legal advice or assistance to detainees unless a specified request is made.
