So, as many might remember, a few weeks/months ago I sent a letter to my local ALP Federal Member for Parliament regarding Asylum Seekers and their current situation.
After no reply, I decided to send the same letter to Bill Shorten MP, leader of the ALP, to gauge his response in the issue.
Today, I received a reply in the form of an email.
Whilst not happy with the templates response, it does go as far as to say that these people are in detention for far too long, and it should be a priority of government to reduce these times considerably.
