I thank the honourable member for his question and for the support of the government's very determined policy to make sure that we can keep Australian children safe. We've invested more money into making sure that we can keep kids safe online to make sure that we can defeat the scourge of paedophilia whether it's in the real world or it's online. I'm very proud of the fact that we've been...

At our borders we are armed with the most professional group of men and women in the Australian Border Force. I think all Australians...

I thank the member for Moncrieff for her question and for her very strong support of our successful border protection policies. This government took a very clear plan to the last election—in fact to the last several elections—where we wanted to clean up Labor's mess.

Thank you to the member for Bonner who works very hard in his electorate to make sure that he can keep his constituents safe. That's the work of all of those members of the House. We wanted to make sure—and in fact we promised at the last election—that we had a plan that we would do whatever it took to keep Australian safe. We've done that as the Attorney-General pointed out...

It's funny that the Labor Party should interject because they cut money from ASIO. On 19 occasions when we've introduced legislation to support ASIO and the Federal Police they have opposed it or have sought to water it down; and when they were in government they cut money from ASIO. Don't take a lecture from the Labor Party. They want the public to believe that there is no difference...

I was watching Channel 10 news last night and imagine my surprise when I saw a report about a group of 20 Labor members attending Otis Dining Hall. There was a sense of deja vu because it automatically took me...

I thank the honourable member for his question. Can I say to him and also to the member for Holt on their leadership of the security and intelligence committee in this parliament you should both be commended for the leadership you provide. I don't think there's much that the member for Holt for instance would say that anybody could argue against when it comes to these matters. I want to...
