Illegal Migration Bill

I feel very strongly about the incredibly hostile and wholly unacceptable approach of this government toward those seeking refuge, via the Illegal Migration Bill

My latest newsletter, February-March, is probably as good an illustration of my concerns for the welfare of refugees as anything else, and these views have not changed for all of my political life. 

I will continue to advocate in parliament and beyond that all immigrants have automatic access to resources without fear of detention or deportation.

I have consistently voted against this dreadful bill and will do so again next week.
