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 Giles, viz.— That all words after “That” be omitted with a view to substituting the following words:

“whilst not declining to give the bill a second reading, the House notes that:

(1)        illegal activity is illegal—even in detention centres;

(2)        the Government already has the powers to address the concerns raised in the bill;

(3)        Labor has written to the Acting Minister for Immigration, Citizenship, Migrant Services and Multicultural Affairs with a proposal to improve the bill, which, in its current form, will have adverse and unwarranted consequences; and

(4)        as of the resumption of debate today, Labor has not received a response from the Acting Minister”—

Debate resumed.

Mr Khalil addressing the House—

It being 1.30 pm, the debate was interrupted in accordance with standing order 43, Mr Khalil was granted leave to continue his speech when the debate is resumed, and the resumption of the debate made an order of the day for a later hour this day.
