Greens Aim to Disallow Three Thousands Islands Ban

The Greens will use the recall of the Senate on Friday to move disallowance of the Government's regulations putting three thousand Australian islands outside the reach of immigration laws.

Speaking in Launceston today, Greens Senator Bob Brown said that the Senate recall should be charged to the Liberal's election campaign.

'Labor has agreed to an extravagant, costly recall to serve the Government's political purposes. Both organisation to be banned have been in operation for a long time. The Government has not briefed the Greens on any emergency factors to justify the recall.'
