NATIONAL REDRESS SCHEME
FOR INSTITUTIONAL CHILD SEXUAL ABUSE(COMMONWEALTH POWERS) BILL 2018
1060. Hon NICK GOIRAN to the Leader of the House representing
the Attorney General:
I refer to the Attorney General's
answer to question without notice 834 in the other place on 30 October 2018 in
which he advised that survivors of institutional child sexual abuse are
currently unable to lodge their application until Western Australia joins the
National Redress Scheme.
(1) Is the
Attorney General or any of his staff aware of the Premier's media
statement on 27 June this year announcing that survivors of child abuse will be
able to apply for redress from 1 July 2018?
(2) Was he or any of his staff
consulted about the drafting of that media release?
(3) Is the
Attorney General or any of his staff aware of the Premier's answer to
question without notice 536, asked in this house on 28 June 2018, in which he
reiterated the position outlined in his media release?
(4) Has the
Attorney General or any of his staff communicated with the Premier or one of
his staff to draw to their attention his erroneous statements, which vastly
contradict the Attorney General's own?
(5) If no to (4),
is this because it is the Attorney General who is in error rather than the
Premier; and, if so, will he undertake to prepare a statement to correct the
Honourable member, I thank you for
the question. I did see a question from the honourable member today about the
National Redress Scheme, but I have not seen a question in the terms he has just
Hon Nick Goiran: It is C1103.
Hon SUE ELLERY: Thank you for
that, but I have not seen it at all today.
Hon Nick Goiran: Very
Hon SUE ELLERY: I am trying
to advise the member that if a question comes in before the end of question time,
I will be happy to provide it.
