Mr McCLELLAND (Attorney-General) (10:04 AM) —I thank the honourable member. I may have to take some of that question on the updated numbers on notice. The most recent figures that I have with respect to children are that 60 unaccompanied minors were transferred to Port Augusta immigration residential housing in April, a number of other unaccompanied minors are being accommodated in Melbourne immigration transit accommodation, and a number of families are being accommodated in Brisbane immigration transit accommodation and an alternative place of detention in Brisbane pending finalisation of their processing. I will take the other numbers on notice.

The DEPUTY SPEAKER —The member for Cook has the call. We will alternate across the chamber—that is the normal process—and the Attorney has just spoken.

Ms Hall interjecting

The DEPUTY SPEAKER —No, I do not think the minister does not count as a government spokesperson. The member for Cook has the call.
