Hon STEPHEN DAWSON replied:

I thank the honourable Leader of the Opposition for some notice of the question. The following information has been provided to me by the Minister for Police.

The Western Australia Police Force advises that it is not possible to provide a response to this question within the required time period. If the honourable member puts the question on notice, I will seek further information from the Western Australia Police Force. I tried to get the member an answer, but it just was not happening.
