Question Directed to the: Parliamentary Secretary representing the Deputy Premier; Minister for Health; Mental Health
Minister responding: Hon R.H. Cook
Parliament: 40 Session: 1

I refer to the system of annual reporting to the Executive Director, Public Health by designated officers of the authorisation of the posthumous collection of gametes, and I ask:
(a) what are the date ranges for all of the reports ever completed;
(b) will the Minister table these reports; and
(c) how many nil returns were received for each of those completed reporting periods?

Answered on 11 April 2019

I am advised:

(a) The date ranges are financial years 2014-15, 2015-16 (first report); 2016-17 (second report), 2017-18 (third report).

(b) No.

(c) The answer to this question has been suppressed for patient confidentiality; provision of this figure would enable a reasonable guess to be made of the actual number of positive returns when compared to previous to Legislative Council Question on Notice 4296 (g) or Legislative Council Question on Notice 444 (a).
