      6   Migration Legislation Amendment (Offshore Processing and Other Measures) Bill 2011

The order of the day having been read for the resumption of the debate on the question—That the bill be now read a second time— And on the amendment moved thereto by Mr Bandt, viz.— That all the words after “That” be omitted with a view to substituting the following words: “the House declines to give the bill a second reading and calls on the Government to end offshore processing and process all asylum seekers’ claims for protection onshore.”— And on the amendment moved thereto by Mr Morrison, viz.— That all words after “House” be omitted with a view to substituting the following words:

“:

(1)    notes that the Government has accepted the Coalition’s policy of offshore processing of asylum seekers on Nauru and Manus Island; and

(2)    calls upon the Government to implement the full suite of the Coalition’s successful policies and calls upon the Government to immediately:

(a)    restore temporary protection visas for all offshore entry persons found to be refugees;

(b)   issue new instructions to Northern Command to commence to turn back boats where it is safe to do so;

(c)    use existing law to remove the benefit of the doubt on a person’s identity where there is a reasonable belief that a person has deliberately discarded their documentation; and

(d)   restore the Bali Process to once again focus on deterrence and border security.”—

Debate resumed.

Question—That the amendment moved by Mr Morrison to the proposed amendment moved by Mr Bandt be agreed to—put.
