Question Without Notice No. 700 asked in the Legislative Council on 25 June 2020 by Hon Peter Collier

Parliament: 40 Session: 1

Answered on 25 June 2020

CHILDREN IN CARE — CRIMINAL CHARGES

700. Hon PETER COLLIER to the Leader of the House representing the Minister for Child Protection:

I ask this question on behalf of Hon Nick Goiran, who is away on urgent parliamentary business.

I refer to question without notice 494, in which the minister stated that the Department of Communities is unable to comment on cases involving individual children and young people as to do so would be contrary to the intent of the Children and Community Services Act 2004. Which section of the act is the minister referring to?

Hon SUE ELLERY replied:

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

It is section 237 of the Children and Community Services Act 2004.
