Life time


On 13 March 2021, Dutton announced that he tested positive for COVID-19, becoming one of the first high-profile cases of the pandemic in Australia. Earlier in March 2021, he had travelled to Washington, D.C., where he met with Five Eyes security ministers, US Attorney General William Barr, and Ivanka Trump on 6 March.


In mid-July 2019, Dutton defended Australia’s right to deport criminal non-citizens in response to concerns raised by the visiting New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern, stating:

In October and November 2019, Dutton expressed his views on protesters and police response. He stated that when protesters break the law “There needs to be mandatory or minimum sentences imposed… A community expectation is that these people are heavily fined or jailed.” He also agreed with an on-air statement made by a 2GB radio presenter that protesters should not receive social security payments. Leader of the Australian Greens Richard Di Natale responded by saying that “Peter Dutton doesn’t know what living in a democracy means” and claimed that he’s “starting to sound more like a dictator than he is an elected politician. Because somebody says something that he doesn’t like, that he doesn’t support, he’s saying we’re going to strip away income support.”

In November 2019, Dutton said that the States should make protesters pay for the cost of police response to demonstrations. He said of protesters: “For many of them they don’t even believe in democracy… These people are completely against our way of life. These people can protest peacefully, as many people do, but the disruption that they seek to cause, the disharmony that they seek to sow within our society is unacceptable.”

In December 2019, Dutton announced that airport security measures were to be increased to detect, deter and respond to potential threats to aviation safety. Measures include greater use of canines and the deployment of extra protective services personnel armed with MK18 short-barreled rifles. Dutton appeared in a video alongside police personnel to announce the policy, sparking criticism of the potential use of police for political purposes.

In March 2019, the Australian Federal Police Association had claimed that the AFP should be removed from the Department of Home Affairs to preserve its integrity and its ability to carry out investigations without government influence. Association president Angela Smith described it as “an embarrassing situation… We look the least independent police force in Australia, surely the other police forces are laughing at us.”

Dutton was re-elected at the 2019 federal election. The political think tank GetUp! identified Dutton as “Australia’s most unwanted hard-right politician” after surveying more than “30,000 members”. GetUp! mounted a campaign in an attempt to defeat Dutton in Dickson. In response, Dutton said GetUp! was, “deceptive”, “undemocratic” and “unrepresentative” and that he would back “parliamentary processes to bring the activist group to heel.” GetUp! has defended the effectiveness of its campaigning in Dutton’s electorate.


In the first August 2018 spill he challenged Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull for the leadership of the Liberal Party, but was defeated by 48 votes to 35. In the aftermath of the spill Dutton announced his resignation from the Second Turnbull Ministry and rejected an invitation from Turnbull to remain in the Cabinet. In the second leadership contest, Dutton was defeated by Treasurer and acting Home Affairs Minister Scott Morrison by 45 votes to 40. Following the appointment of Morrison as the new Prime Minister on 24 August, Dutton was re-appointed Home Affairs Minister in the Morrison Government, but relinquished his duties and responsibilities for immigration and border protection.

In June 2015, an au pair who was detained at Brisbane Airport made a phone call and had her tourist visa reinstated. In November, in a second case, Dutton granted a visa to another au pair, despite his department warning him that she was at risk of breaching her work conditions on her tourist visa. Dutton indicated that he knew neither tourist. In August 2018, Roman Quaedvlieg indicated that he had personal knowledge of one of the cases, and was seeking to correct Hansard if it did not match his knowledge. A third au pair was granted a visa due to lobbying by AFL chief Gillon McLachlan, she was due to stay with his relative Callum Maclachlan. Dutton’s department again warned him there were indications that she was intending to work for Callum’s family. A Senate inquiry into two of the cases published a report on 11 September 2018. It recommended “that the Senate consider censuring the Minister for Home Affairs (the Hon Peter Dutton MP) … for failing to observe fairness in making official decisions as required by the Statement of Ministerial Standards.”

In March 2018 Dutton made calls to treat white South African farmers as refugees, stating that “they need help from a civilised country”. However, his offer was rejected by Afrikaner rights organisation AfriForum, which stated that the future of Afrikaners was in Africa, as well as by the survivalist group the Suidlanders, which took credit for bringing the issue of a purported “white genocide” to international attention and for Dutton’s decision, and was met with “regret” by the South African foreign ministry. The Australian High Commissioner was subsequently summoned by the South African foreign ministry, which expressed its offence at Dutton’s statements, and demanded a “full retraction”.

Later, in April 2018, it emerged that Dutton’s department had previously blocked asylum applications by a white farmer, and another white South African woman, with the decisions upheld by the Administrative Appeals Tribunal.

In early July 2018, Dutton ordered the deportation of controversial New Zealand Baptist Pastor Logan Robertson, who had disrupted services at two mosques in Kuraby and Darra in Brisbane. Dutton approved Robertson’s visa cancellation on the grounds that he had violated the conditions of his visa, stating that “we have a wonderful tradition in our country of freedom of speech, but we’re not going to tolerate people going to a place of worship and harassing others.” Robertson had early drawn controversy in New Zealand for his homophobic remarks and opposition to same-sex marriage.

In mid-July 2018, Dutton’s immigration “character test” became the subject of a controversial Australian Broadcasting Corporation documentary, entitled “Don’t Call Australia Home”, focusing on New Zealanders who had been deported from Australia. In response, Dutton issued a tweet defending his deportation policy and claiming that deporting 184 “bikies” saved Australia A$116 million. In response, the New Zealand Minister of Justice Andrew Little, who also appeared in the documentary, criticised Australia’s deportation laws for lacking “humanitarian ideals.” The documentary’s release also coincided with the release of a 17-year-old New Zealand youth from an Australian detention centre, which had caused friction between the two governments. In response, Dutton defended his Government’s policy of deporting non-citizen criminals and chastised New Zealand for not contributing enough to assist Australian naval patrols intercepting the “people smugglers.”

On 21 August 2018, Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull called a snap ballot of the leadership of the Liberal Party following several days of feverish leadership speculation, of which Dutton was at the centre. Dutton responded to Turnbull’s ballot call by formally challenging for the leadership of the party and won 35 of 83 votes available, 7 short of a majority. Dutton then resigned from the Ministry despite being offered by Turnbull to retain his position of Minister for Home Affairs, and the media speculated that Dutton and his conservative backers in the party were likely to challenge for the leadership again in the near future. Three days later, Dutton called for another leadership spill, and Malcolm Turnbull tendered his resignation to the Governor-General. Dutton was defeated by Treasurer and Acting Home Affairs Minister Scott Morrison by 45 votes to 40.

Dutton is aligned with the right-wing, conservative faction of the Liberal Party. He has been described as a right-wing populist, and is opposed to an Australian republic. In December 2018, Dutton told Sky News that for the prior seventeen years he had regarded “parliament as a disadvantage for sitting governments”.

Dutton has been accused of supporting and promoting the white genocide myth. In 2018, he declared that Boers required refugee status in Australia because of “the horrific circumstances they face” in South Africa. BBC News reported that the Suidlanders group’s “message of white genocide” had “resonated” with Dutton, prompting him to offer fast-track visas to white South African farmers due to their being “persecuted”, claiming they needed help from a “civilised” country. Meanwhile, local media contribution from The Greens leader Richard Di Natale labelled the process of bringing white South African farmers to Australia as thoroughly racist. He also labelled it as a policy that would restore the semblance of policy that was not dissimilar to that enacted under the White Australia Policy.


On 18 July 2017, he was named Minister for Home Affairs and officially appointed on 20 December 2017 to lead the Department of Home Affairs, a newly created portfolio giving him oversight of ASIO, the AFP and Border Force. He previously served as Minister for Workforce Participation and Minister for Revenue and Assistant Treasurer in the Howard Government.

On 15 April 2017 shots were fired by the Papua New Guinea defence force into the Manus Island Detention Centre. Dutton responded saying “There was difficulty, as I understand it, in the community. There was an alleged incident where three asylum seekers were alleged to be leading a local five-year old boy back toward the facility and there was a lot of angst around that, if you like, within the local PNG community.” “I think there was concern about why the boy was being led or for what purpose he was being led away back into the regional processing centre. So I think it’s fair to say that the mood had elevated quite quickly. I think some of the local residents were quite angry about this particular incident and another alleged sexual assault.”

On 31 October 2017, the Papuan Government closed down the Manus Island regional processing centre. However, 600 men residing in the processing centre refused to be moved to alternative accommodation in the town of Lorengau and staged a protest. Dutton defended the closure of the processing centre and asserted that the Papuan authorities had given notice of the camp’s impending closure in May 2017. He also rejected Australian Greens Senator Nick McKim’s report that there was no safe alternative accommodation available as false and claimed McKim was inciting trouble. Following a prolonged standoff with Papuan security forces, the remaining men were evacuated, many forcibly, to new accommodation. Arrangements have been made to resettle an unspecified number of the asylum seekers in the US. The others will be moved to either a different part of Papua New Guinea or a different country.

In mid November 2017, Dutton rejected an offer by the newly-elected New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern to resettle 150 asylum seekers from the Manus Island detention centre in New Zealand and warned that it would have repercussions for the two countries’ bilateral relations. He also claimed that New Zealand’s offer would encourage people smugglers. Dutton also criticised a New Zealand offer to provide $3 million for services for asylum seekers on Manus and Nauru as a “waste of money” that could be spend elsewhere, such as displaced people in Indonesia. In addition, Dutton criticised Australia’s Opposition Leader Bill Shorten’s call for Australia to accept the New Zealand offer as an attempt to appease the Labor Left with “cheap political stunts and mealy-mouthed words”.

On 20 December 2017, Dutton was appointed the Minister for Home Affairs with responsibilities of overseeing the Department of Home Affairs which was established on 20 December 2017 by Administrative Arrangement Order. The Home Affairs portfolio is a major re-arrangement of national security, law enforcement, emergency management, transport security, border control, and immigration functions.

In July 2017, Dutton’s Department of Immigration and Border Protection introduced a special Skilled Independent subclass 189 visa to provide a pathway for New Zealanders holding a Special Category Visa to acquire Australian citizenship. The visa requires NZ nationals to have held a Special Category Visa for five years and to maintain an annual income of $53,900. Between 60,000 and 80,000 New Zealanders residing in Australia are eligible for the Skilled Independent subclass 189 visa. By February 2018, 1,512 skilled independent visas had been issued by late February 2018 with another 7,500 visas still being processed. The Skilled Independent subclass 189 visa was criticised by Australian Greens Senator Nick McKim as a stealth means of favouring “English-speaking, white and wealthy” migrants.

Dutton opposes same-sex marriage. In March 2017 it was reported in The Sydney Morning Herald that Dutton “said privately it was inevitable that same-sex marriage would become law in Australia so it would be better for the Coalition, rather than Labor, to control the process”. Dutton’s actions publicly have been in opposition to same-sex advocates and “the forcefulness of Mr Dutton’s attack on corporate chief executives last week – in which he told them to ‘stick to their knitting’ – has aroused suspicion among some colleagues who believed he was committed to achieving a breakthrough on [same-sex marriage]”. The following month The Daily Telegraph reported that Dutton was asked by a lesbian for clarification on his position, and he “told her he had been clear that he was against same-sex marriage”. In his political career, Dutton has voted “very strongly against same sex marriage”. However, he voted in favour of the Marriage Amendment (Definition and Religious Freedoms) Act 2017, which legalised same-sex marriage; 65 percent of his constituency voted “Yes” in the Australian Marriage Law Postal Survey.

In March 2017, 31 CEOs signed a letter to Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull calling for a free vote in the Australian Parliament on same-sex marriage. In response to this letter, on 16 March 2017, Dutton said that the CEOs “shouldn’t shove their views down our throats” and that CEOs who were “doing the wrong thing” should “be publicly shamed”. Dutton repeated his criticism at a speech to the LNP State Council in Queensland on 18 March.

On 9 May 2017, a 67-year-old man pushed a pie into the face of Qantas CEO Alan Joyce while Joyce was speaking at a function in Perth. The next day, the assailant confirmed that the attack was to protest against Joyce’s support for same-sex marriage. Dutton had singled out Joyce in his criticism of pro-same-sex marriage CEOs, leading some LGBTI advocates to hold him partially responsible for the attack. Dutton condemned the attack on Twitter Account name.


In 2016, News Corp Sunday political editor Samantha Maiden wrote a column critical of Jamie Briggs. Dutton drafted a text message to Briggs describing Maiden as a “mad fucking witch” but inadvertently sent it to Maiden. Maiden accepted an apology from Dutton.

Before the 2016 election Dutton said of refugees “many … won’t be numerate or literate in their own language let alone English”, and “These people would be taking Australian jobs”. Turnbull defended Dutton by stating he is an “outstanding Immigration Minister”. Against a statewide swing against the government of 2.9 points, Dutton’s margin fell from 6.7 to 1.6 points, leaving him with a margin of fewer than 3,000 votes against Labor candibeen in a relationship with? Linda Lavarch.

In November 2016, Dutton said it was a mistake by the Malcolm Fraser administration to have admitted Lebanese Muslim immigrants. Foreign Minister Julie Bishop said Dutton was making a specific point about those charged with terrorism offences. “He made it quite clear that he respects and appreciates the contribution that the Lebanese community make in Australia.”


In a 2015 poll by Australian Doctor magazine, based on votes from over 1,100 doctors, Dutton was voted the worst health minister in the last 35 years by 46 percent of respondents.

In September 2015, Dutton cancelled the visa of anti-abortion activist Troy Newman, over remarks in his 2000 book Their Blood Cries Out.

On 5 June 2015, Dutton denied claims made by Greens Senator Sarah Hanson-Young that she was spied on during a visit to Nauru. At the same time he called into question her credibility saying “I have evidence that Senator Hanson-Young over-states every issue. She gets her facts wrong most of the time. And I just think you need to look at it in the light of experience with Senator Hanson-Young. If she’s got evidence, produce it.” He also claimed that “What Sarah Hanson-Young is about is publicity. She loves the camera and she loves to see her own name in the paper. That’s the start and finish of Sarah Hanson-Young.” Hanson-Young responded that “Peter Dutton can attack and insult me as much as he likes, but nothing will change the fact that my work has revealed systemic child abuse and the rape of young women on Nauru under his watch.” The spying claims were later confirmed by the Immigration Department and Wilson Security who carried out the spying operation.

On 11 September 2015, Dutton was overheard on an open microphone, before a community meeting on Syrian refugees, joking about rising sea levels in the Pacific Islands. He said “time doesn’t mean anything when you’re about to have water lapping at your door”. Dutton initially refused to apologise, saying it was a private conversation, but later apologised. The foreign minister of the Marshall Islands at the time, Tony deBrum, responded by writing the “insensitivity knows no bounds in the big polluting island down [south]” and the “Next time waves are battering my home [and] my kids are scared, I’ll ask Peter Dutton to come over, and he is still probably laughing,”


Under Minister Dutton, projected funding in the health portfolio increased in the 2014–15 Budget to $66.9 billion, an increase of 7.5 percent from $62.2 billion in 2012–13, the final full year of the Labor Government. Projected expenditure on Medicare increased over 9.5 percent from $18.5 billion in 2012–13 under Labor to a projected $20.32 billion in 2014–15 under Dutton. Funding for public hospital services increased by nearly 14 percent under Dutton in the 2014–15 Budget to a projected $15.12 billion compared to $13.28 billion in the last full year of the Labor Government in 2012–13.

On 23 December 2014, Dutton was sworn in as the Minister for Immigration and Border Protection after a cabinet reshuffle.


Dutton retained his seat at the 2013 election. He was appointed to the Ministry by then Prime Minister Tony Abbott, and served as Minister for Health and Minister for Sport.


Dutton retained his seat with a positive swing at the 2010 federal election, despite an unfavourable redistribution. In the lead-up to the 2013 federal election, he announced a range of Coalition health policies, which were received favourably by industry groups. The Australian Medical Association said “the Coalition has delivered a strong package of practical, affordable health policies that would strengthen general practice”, while Cancer Council Australia said that “Dutton’s promise to finalise the bowel cancer screening program by 2021 would save an additional 35,000 lives over the next 40 years.”

As the 2010 election approached, it looked like Dutton would lose to the Labor candibeen in a relationship with? due to a redistribution of division boundaries that had erased his majority and made Dickson notionally Labor. To safeguard himself, Dutton sought pre-selection for the merged Liberal National Party in the safe Liberal seat of McPherson on the Gold Coast (despite not living in or near McPherson). Some constituents complained, “The abandoning of a seat by a sitting MP halfway through a parliamentary term to contest pre-selection in a seat over 100 kilometres to the south is not looked upon favourably.”


In September 2008, Nelson was replaced as Liberal leader by Malcolm Turnbull, who appointed Dutton as Shadow Minister for Health and How old?ing. He retained that position when Tony Abbott succeeded Turnbull as leader in December 2009. In June 2010, Dutton released the Coalition’s mental health policy. The Australian described it as “the most significant announcement by any political party in relation to a targeted, evidence-based investment in mental health”, but not all experts agreed.


Following the 2007 election, Dutton was promoted to shadow cabinet by the new Liberal leader Brendan Nelson, as Shadow Minister for Finance, Competition Policy and Deregulation. In 2008, he chose not to be present in the chamber during the apology to the Stolen Generations, which enjoyed bipartisan support. He said “I regarded it as something which was not going to deliver tangible outcomes to kids who are being raped and tortured in communities in the 21st century.” Later, in a 2014 interview with the Sydney Morning Herald, Dutton said he regretted boycotting the apology: “I underestimated the symbolic and cultural significance of it.”


Dutton married his first wife when he was 22 years of age; however, the marriage ended after a few months. His eldest child, a daughter, grew up in 2002 to another partner, and splits time between her parents in a shared parenting arrangement. In 2003 Dutton married his second wife, Kirilly (née  Brumby), with whom he has two sons.


Dutton was elected to the Division of Dickson at the 2001 election, defeating Labor’s Cheryl Kernot. He was elevated to the ministry after the 2004 election as Minister for Workforce Participation, a position he held until January 2006. He was then appointed Assistant Treasurer and Minister for Revenue. He successfully retained Dickson at the 2007 election, which saw the government lose office. However, his margin was reduced to just 217 votes more than Labor’s Fiona McNamara.


He went on to become a businessman, completing a Bachelor of Business at the Queensland University of Technology. He and his father founded the business Dutton Holdings, which was registered in 2000; it operated under six different trading and business names. The company bought, renovated, and converted buildings into childcare centres, and in 2002 it sold three childcare centres to the now defunct ABC Learning. ABC Learning continued to pay rent to Dutton Holdings for a commercial lease until at least 2007. Dutton Holdings continues to trade under the name Dutton Building & Development.


In 1999, Dutton left the Queensland Police. Allegations were made that his departure was due to an incident of ‘misconduct’. Documentation filed in the District Court of Queensland in 2000 describes Dutton’s resignation as being prompted by a loss of driving confidence resulting from an incident on 4 August 1998. Dutton was driving an unmarked Mazda 626 during a covert surveillance operation. Dutton rolled his car while in pursuit of an escaped prisoner who was driving erratically. Dutton also suffered numerous physical injuries during the accident, was hospitalised briefly and bedridden for a week. Dutton had sought damages of $250,000 from the escaped prisoner’s insurance company but dropped the claim in 2005.


Dutton graduated from the Queensland Police Academy in 1990. He was a Queensland Police officer for nine years, working in the Drug Squad in Brisbane in the early 1990s. He also worked in the Sex Offenders Squad and the National Crime Authority. As a second job, he worked with his father in a building business.


Dutton joined the Young Liberals in 1988. He became the policy vice-chair of the Bayside Young Liberals the following year and chair of the branch in 1990. At the 1989 Queensland state election, the 19-year-old Dutton ran unsuccessfully as the Liberal candibeen in a relationship with? against Tom Burns (former state ALP leader) in the safe Labor seat of Lytton.


Peter Craig Dutton (born 18 November 1970) is an Australian Liberal Party politician serving as Minister for Home Affairs since 2017, and has served as Member of Parliament (MP) for Dickson since 2001. Dutton served as Minister for Health and Sport from 2013 to 2014, and Minister for Immigration from 2014 to 2017 in the Abbott and Turnbull Government.


As both Immigration Minister and Home Affairs Minister, Peter Dutton has defended an amendment to the Migration Act 1958 that facilitates the denial or cancellation of Australian visas for non-citizens on “character” grounds. This stringent “character test” also affects non-citizens who have lived most of their lives in Australia or who have families living in the country. New Zealand nationals living in Australia were disproportionately affected by this “character test” with over 1,300 New Zealanders having been deported from Australia in the period between January 2015 and July 2018. According to a Home Affairs Department report, 620 New Zealanders had their visas cancelled on character grounds in 2017 alone.
