letter to Peter Dutton on getting children out of detention - 21 February 20126

Dear Minister
I read this quote below which was attributed to you

"I have said to you before I want to get the number of children in detention down to zero."

Could you please confirm that this quote has been correctly attributed to you?
If yes, when did you say this, Minister?
If yes, by "detention" are you referring to all children in detention both on and offshore?
If yes, how many children have been released since this statement?
If yes, what concrete steps have been taken or will be taken in the future to ensure all children are released?

I would appreciate a reply as soon as possible because I feel very strongly that all asylum seekers and especially children deserve to be treated with respect and dignity. What the government is doing with regard to asylum seekers is wrong and I do not support it.

Thank you for your attention
