Senator O’Sullivan speaks on the children in detention report

12 February 2015

“The integrity of this report remains in question for some due to the fact that it took some 15 months, almost self-evidently waiting for a change of government, to conduct an inquiry well after the peak problem that is said to have motivated the report had diminished by almost 50 per cent. My point in speaking tonight is to urge anybody who is going to give consideration to this report to approach it very cautiously, because I believe that the genesis was flawed and that therefore impacts on the integrity of the document.”
