1306. Hon CHARLES SMITH to the Leader of the House
representing the Attorney General:
I refer to the recent amendment to
the Misuse of Drug Act 2017, allowing sentencing of life imprisonment for the
possession of 28 grams or more of methamphetamine. How many people have been
sentenced to life imprisonment since the law gained royal assent?
I thank the honourable member for
some notice of the question. However, due to the short time frame and level of
detail required to complete the answer, the Attorney General requests that it
be placed on notice.
Hon Charles Smith: I lodged
it two days ago.
