ADOPTION ACT —
1149. Hon NICK GOIRAN to the Leader of the House representing
the Minister for Child Protection:
I refer to the statutory review of
the Adoption Act 1994.
(1) Is the minister aware that the
report on the review was tabled in November last year?
(2) If yes to (1), on which date
did this occur?
(3) Is the minister aware that the
review made 31 recommendations?
(4) Will the minister table the
government's response to those recommendations?
(5) If no to (4), why not?
I thank the honourable member for
some notice of the question.
I am aware of the statutory review of the Adoption Act 1994 and the 31
recommendations as I tabled this in Parliament on 21 November 2018 in the
Legislative Assembly and on 22 November 2018 in the Legislative Council. The
government is considering the implementation of the legislative amendments
required. The non-legislative recommendations are currently being progressed by
the Department of Communities.
