Asylum-Seekers

Senator HANSON-YOUNG (South Australia)

(4.20 pm) - I move:

That the Senate -

(a) notes the continued suspension of processing asylum claims from Afghan nationals, which is due to end on 9 October 2010;

and

(b) calls on the Government to immediately lift its suspension of Afghan asylum applications, restoring the right of people seeking protection from persecution to have their claims assessed in a fair and timely manner.

Question agreed to.
