Dear FOI,

Thank you for your very timely response to this FOI request.

As the Manus Island Regional Processing Center is of current public importance and subject to an Inquiry by the 'Legal and Constitutional Affairs References Committee' of the Australian Senate I ask that you consider a full waiver of the fees outlined above.

I believe the disclosure of this document will help to further advance public debate around the very important and contentious issue of Mandatory Detention of Refugees by the Australian Government and its Contractors.

Yours sincerely,

deepthought
