Migration Act 1958 - Determination of Protection (Class XA) and Refugee Humanitarian (Class XB) Visas 2014 - IMMI 14/117 – [F2014L01819]

 

 

On 12 February 2015 the Senate Standing Committee on Regulations and Ordinances requested advice on consultation that was undertaken for Migration Act 1958 - Determination of Protection (Class XA) and Refugee Humanitarian (Class XB) Visas 2014 - IMMI 14/117 (the Instrument). The Committee noted that the Explanatory Statement for the Instrument stated that consultation was considered inappropriate due to the instrument being required as a matter of urgency. The Committee had requested further information regarding the matter of urgency and requested the Explanatory Statement be updated in accordance with the requirements of the Legislative Instruments Act 2003.

 

The Department of Immigration and Border Protection replied to the Committee on 19 March 2015 and the Explanatory Statement has been amended to provide further information on the matter of urgency.

 

Enclosed is the amended Explanatory Statement for the Instrument.

 

Yours sincerely
