Question Without Notice No. 1107 asked in the Legislative Council on 26 September 2019 by Hon Aaron Stonehouse

Parliament: 40 Session: 1

Answered on

CRIMINAL PROPERTY CONFISCATION ACT — REVIEW

1107. Hon AARON STONEHOUSE to the Leader of the House representing the Attorney General:

I refer the Attorney General to the announcement of a review of the Criminal Property Confiscation Act made in the other place on Wednesday, 19 September 2018. I understand that the reviewer requested an extension beyond the predicted reporting date in February 2019, and that the request was granted. Although this is a weighty topic that deserves serious deliberation, it has been more than a year since the original announcement, and I therefore ask the Attorney General whether he is able to indicate to the house when we can expect to sight the report, which I believe is now in the hands of his department.

Hon SUE ELLERY replied:

I thank the honourable member for some notice of the question.

The Attorney General intends to table this report before the end this year.
