Question Without Notice No. 66 asked in the Legislative Council on 19 February 2019 by Hon Nick Goiran

Minister responding: Hon S.F. McGurk
Parliament: 40 Session: 1

Answered on


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

I refer to the answer to my question without notice 5 on 12 February 2019, in which the minister advised the house that in each instance in which a young person charged with or convicted of a sexual offence attends a public school, every case is monitored, assessed and managed by the Department of Communities.

(1) As the school year is now underway, how many such cases is the department currently monitoring?

(2) Does the department also monitor such cases in which the young person attends a private school?

Hon SUE ELLERY replied:

Madam President, I do have an answer, but I think it is better if I check one element of it, so I am going to do that. If I can get that done before the end of question time, I will give the honourable member the answer today; if not, I will give the answer to him tomorrow.
