I refer to the answer given by the Minister for Prevention of Family and Domestic Violence on Thursday, 18 May 2017 to question without notice 54 asked in the other place.
      (1) What are the initiatives the Attorney General has ''in train'' that will improve our criminal justice system to hold perpetrators to account?

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

      (2) The implementation of each of the aforementioned initiatives is to occur following the appropriate consultation and government process.
