CHILD PROTECTION —
CHILD SEXUAL ABUSE — ROEBOURNE
404. Hon NICK GOIRAN to the Leader of the House representing
I refer to the minister's
answer to my question without notice 382 asked on 16 May 2018 in which she
informed the house that the Premier is aware if any of the 184 victims of child
sex offences in Roebourne are currently residing with a person either charged
or convicted with one or more child sex offences. How many of the victims was
the Premier told are residing with such a person?
I thank the honourable member for
some notice of the question.
I am afraid the honourable member
has misinterpreted the answer given on 16 May 2018. To clarify for his
understanding: yes, the Premier has discussed the plight of the children with
the Minister for Child Protection. That is why we have the West Pilbara Plan.
No, the Premier is not aware of any victims residing with a person either
charged or convicted with one or more child sex offences.
Should the honourable member have
any information about any child or children who may be at risk of harm, the
Premier would ask him to take the appropriate action to report these concerns
to the Department of Communities and/or the Western Australia Police Force.
