FOSTER CARE — ABUSE ALLEGATIONS

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

I refer to the Leader of the House's answer to my question without notice 752, asked on 11 September 2018, in which she informed the house that a district director had agreed to extend the reporting time frame for the review into a male foster carer in Newman who has been served with a restraining order.

(1) How many extensions have been agreed to in this case since the carer review commenced on 13 June 2018?

(2) Further to (1), on what dates were such extensions agreed to?

(3) How many carer standard of care assessments are currently underway, following allocation by district directors within the department?

(4) Further to (3), how many of these assessments have had their reporting time frame extended?

Hon ALANNA CLOHESY replied:

On behalf of the Leader of the House, I thank the honourable member for some notice of the question.

It is not possible to provide the requested information in the time required and I therefore ask the honourable member to place this question on notice.
