Question Without Notice No. 994 asked in the Legislative Council on 17 September 2019 by Hon Nick Goiran

Minister responding: Hon S.M. Ellery
Parliament: 40 Session: 1

Answered on

MINISTER FOR ENVIRONMENT — STANDING COMMITTEE ONESTIMATES AND FINANCIAL OPERATIONS — PERSONAL EXPLANATION

994. Hon NICK GOIRAN to the Minister for Education and Training:

I refer to the statement by the Minister for Environment on 22 August 2019 on behalf of the Minister for Police in which it was revealed that the multi-agency protocols for education options for young people charged with sexual behaviours contains at least one statement that, whilst correct when first created in 2017, is now incorrect.

(1) When will the protocols be revised to bring them in line with WA police's more contemporary view?

(2) Will the minister table the updated protocols once they are revised?

Hon SUE ELLERY replied:

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

The protocols were put in place under the McGowan government to enhance the safety and wellbeing of students in school. The previous Liberal–National government had no such arrangement in place.

(1) The Department of Education continues to have discussions with the other relevant agencies to ensure the ongoing effectiveness of the protocols.

(2) Not applicable.
