DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH — STAFF — WORKING WITH CHILDREN CHECKS
      787. Hon NICK GOIRAN to the parliamentary secretary representing the Minister for Health:
I refer to the minister's answer to my question on notice 98, in which he informed the house that as at 28 June 2017, the Child and Adolescent Health Service had two employees recorded as having ''application pending'' for a working with children check card.
(1) Were those two applications lodged on 23 March 2017 and 28 March 2017?
(2) Do these two employees now have a valid working with children check card?
(3) If yes to (2), on what date did they obtain a valid card?
(4) If no to (2), why not?
(5) On what date did the two employees commence employment in child-related work?
