In an interview with RN Breakfast, Paterson stated that he does not believe it was an error to expedite the passing of the legislation, despite the fact that it is currently facing legal challenges.
Unfortunately, there was no other option but to expedite the process. If we did not, these individuals would have been released into the community without any enforceable limitations.
