Michael Keenan MP - Federal Member for Stirling Christmas Island Boat Tragedy June 10, 2013

The sinking of a vessel near Christmas Island and significant loss of life is a terrible reminder of the risks associated with undertaking this perilous journey to Australia and the dangers of using people smugglers.

This is yet another human tragedy and we extend our condolences to the victims and their families.

The Opposition will seek a full briefing from the Government about the circumstances of this tragic event.

We also extend our thanks to the men and women of Border Protection Command who are doing a very difficult job in the face of unprecedented circumstances.
