Senator HANSON-YOUNG (South Australia) (18:54): I refer the minister to page 19 of the Houston report, where it clearly says that one of the things that the Houston report believes is important is 'improved access to timely and fair processing of asylum seekers’ claims for refugee status'. I ask the minister again: what is the government's definition of 'indefinite detention' and how does indefinite detention fit with the requirement in the Houston report for 'timely and fair processing of asylum seekers' claims'?
