The vessel, with three crew onboard, arrived at Flying Fish Cove on Thursday. Ms Gillard said occasionally boats do elude border security patrols. We have more border security patrols, more border security presence in our waters to the north than was there under the previous government, she said. We have stepped up our border security presence. She rejected suggestions the arrival of the 54th asylum seeker boat in Australian waters this year was evidence the Governments policies were not working. If the measure is to be the number of boats that arrived, there was no evidence that the policies of the Howard Government were working, Ms Gillard said. After they intro duced, for example, temporary protection visas, the number of arrivals went up. Ms Gillard pointed to the civil war in Sri Lanka and conflict in Afghanistan as factors that were contributing to the increase in asylum seekers in our region. The 60 suspected asylum seekers will undergo security, identity and health checks on Christmas Island. Inmates in lockdown BRISBANE: Industrial action caused four Queensland prisons to keep inmates locked in their cells for eight hours yesterday. Staff at Brisbane Correctional Centre, Brisbane Womens Correctional Centre, Woodford Correctional Centre and Wolston Correctional Centre went on strike over workplace health and safety and lockdown was 7am to 3pm. Firies set for containment SYDNEY: Firefighters will take advantage of cooler temperatures over t h e w e e k e n d t o strengthen containment lines around bushfires burning across NSW. The Rural Fire Service has issued a total fire ban until midnight tonight for the northwest and central west plains, where temperatures will be in the mid 30s. Stolen wages in Torres Strait BRISBANE: The peak Torres Strait authority says 700 public servants are being cheated out of pay, superannuation and other entitlements. The Torres Strait Regional Authority (TSRA) said teacher aides, community police, health administrators and government workers are not getting paid at the same level as federal workers.
