In the first time a minister from parliament’s lower house has fronted a Senate inquiry since 1992, immigration Minister Scott Morrison and Operation Sovereign Borders commander Lieutenant General Angus Campbell are giving evidence before an inquiry into government secrecy over border protection operations.

The Senate’s legal and constitutional affairs committee is examining the government’s public interest immunity claim to deny the upper house access to official documents.

Lieutenant-General Campbell warned the disclosure of certain documents could undermine international cooperation and agreements.

Lieutenant-General Campbell also believed it was too early to provide more information on the 22 boat arrivals that took place in the early phase of the operation, which started on September 18.

Operation Sovereign Borders would not have achieved the objectives it had without a limit on the information it released publicly.
