Answered on


1260. Hon NICK GOIRAN to the Leader of the House representing the Minister for Child Protection:

I refer to reports that thousands of confidential documents relating to child protection cases were accessed by vandals in the unoccupied and unsecured McCall Centre in Mosman Park.

(1) Is the minister aware that the assistant director general corporate operations is reported as saying, ''Any remaining documents have been relocated to a more secure facility''?

(2) In what locations are the documents, which were previously stored at the McCall Centre, now being stored?

(3) On what date were these documents relocated?

(4) Do any documents remain at the McCall Centre?

(5) Are any documents missing or damaged?

Hon SUE ELLERY replied:

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

(1) Yes.

(2) They are being stored at the May Holman Building in East Perth.

(3) They were relocated from 16 to 23 October 2019.

(4) No.

(5) The Department of Communities advises that all documents at the site have been recovered and relocated intact.
