Following on from the documentary premiere Leaky Boat on ABC1, Tony Jones will host a special edition of Q&A: Stopping the Boats to discuss how Australia should be dealing with the problem of boat arrivals.
And for the first time Q&A will use a new system of interactive electronic polling which will measure the changing attitudes of our studio audience as the debate unfolds.
Tony Jones will lead a lively and potentially controversial Q&A with:
Chris Bowen, Minister for Immigration
Scott Morrison, Shadow Minister for Immigration and Citizenship
Sarah Hanson-Young, Australian Greens Senator
Najeeba Wazefadost, Afghan Refugee and Advocate
David Marr, Journalist and author of Dark Victory
Piers Akerman, Columnist for The Daily Telegraph
