the Minister for Child Protection:
I refer to the answers to my questions
without notice 822, 865 and 888.
(1) Will the
minister now inform the house how many referrals have been made to Centrecare's
child sexual abuse therapy program in the goldfields region this calendar year?
(2) Will the
minister table the two most recent briefing notes received by the minister
regarding concerns raised by Foster Families South West and the Foster Care

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