PRIME Minister Julia Gillard has slammed the Federal Opposition's asylum seeker policy, labelling Tony Abbott's slogans of turning back the boats as "hollow".

Mr Abbott has cast doubt on the likelihood of Coalition representatives serving on the Government's multi-party reference group for asylum policy.

He told the ABC's Insiders program this morning that the Coalition already had a clear policy on the issue, saying the Opposition did not "need an external committee to tell us what our policy is."

"Rather than appoint new committees to tell her what her policy should be, the Prime Minister should be using the committee that's been set up for this purpose, the Cabinet," Mr Abbott said.

But Ms Gillard says Mr Abbott is still refusing to provide details on how his policy will work.
