I thank the member for her question. As I indicated before there's some $123 million of support which is going in to support Indigenous communities.

The member would be very well aware of the statement that was made by the ABF commissioner Michael Outram on this matter on 25 March 2020 which set out very clearly the actions and responsibility of the Australian Border Force in relation to that matter.
