Senator MILNE (TasmaniaLeader of the Australian Greens) (17:58): I would like to get to a practical example. The government have made this legislation retrospective. They said it will apply to the approximately 220 people who have been intercepted trying to come to our country in the last week. Are any of those 220 people unaccompanied minors; and, if so, (1) will they be going to Nauru or Manus Island to live in tents, (2) how long will they be there and (3) what are the kitchen, toilet, shower and other facilities that they will be subject to when they arrive there in the next couple of weeks?
