624. Hon NICK GOIRAN to the Leader of the House representing
the Minister for Child Protection:
I refer to the answer to my

informed the house that 27 children in the care of the chief executive officer
of the Department of Communities currently reside at Banksia Hill Detention
(1) How many of these children are

(2) Is it the case that the legislative threshold for

(3) If yes to (2), how many section
88C secure care arrangements are currently in place in our state?
I thank the honourable member for
some notice of the question.

I am unable to provide an answer today, but I will endeavour to have a response
for the member as soon as possible.
