CHILDREN WITH HARMFUL SEXUAL BEHAVIOURS — RESIDENTIAL CARE — REVIEW

525. Hon NICK GOIRAN to the Leader of the House representing the Minister for Child Protection:

I refer to the Commissioner for Children and Young People's Independent review into the Department of Communities' policies and practices in the placement of children with harmful sexual behaviours in residential care settings, tabled on 15 September 2021.

(1) Has the minister ever met with ''Macie''?

(2) Has the director general ever met with ''Macie''?

(3) If yes to (1) or (2), on how many occasions?

Hon SUE ELLERY replied:

I thank the honourable member for some notice of the question. The Department of Communities is bound by obligations under the Children and Community Services Act 2004 and in the interests of the safety and wellbeing of the young person involved it will make no further comment.
