Scott Morrison says Labor’s failed border protection policies cost lives when it was in government.WHAT WE LEARNED
* The immigration minister is prepared to brief MPs on the health of children on Nauru.
* The Ruddock report into religious freedom was never brought to cabinet between May 18 when it was received and when Scott Morrison assumed the prime ministership in August.
* 90 people have been charged as a result of counter-terrorism operations since September 2014 and 230 people in Australia are being investigated for providing support to individuals and groups in the Syria-Iraq conflict.
WHAT THE GOVERNMENT WANTED TO SPIN
The government is delivering certainty and stability.
WHAT LABOR WANTED TO TALK ABOUT
When will the prime minister tell the voters of Wentworth why Malcolm Turnbull is no longer prime minister.
WHAT THEY SAID
“Does the Prime Minister honestly expect Australia to believe that an administrative error led to the government supporting a white supremacist slogan?” – Opposition frontbencher Tony Burke.
“Criticism of me and my office is a completely fair cop.” – Attorney-General Christian Porter in response.
“The failure, the failure, the failure, the failure, the failure and the failure that I lived through as the shadow immigration minister, while they just sat there and failed and the bodies piled up, is an absolute disgrace.” – Prime Minister Scott Morrison pointing to Labor’s former immigration ministers.
@Tony_Burke At 4:15pm today the Reps will vote on whether we can move and support this resolution: “the House rejects the resolution put to the Senate yesterday which included a white supremacist slogan that is also used by hate groups like the KKK.” The government plans to vote no. #auspol
