Question Without Notice No. 1062 asked in the Legislative Council on 24 September 2019 by Hon Nick Goiran

Parliament: 40 Session: 1

Answered on 24 September 2019


1062. Hon NICK GOIRAN to the Leader of the House representing the Minister for Child Protection:

I refer to the minister's answer to my question without notice 645 on 13 June 2019 in which she informed the house that the draft reports from the research partners for the Department of Communities' review of the grandcarer support program were expected to be finalised by the end of June 2019.

(1) When were the draft reports provided?

(2) Will the minister table those reports from the research partners?

(3) When will the final report of the department's review be tabled?

Hon SUE ELLERY replied:

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

(1) Wanslea Family Services and its university research partners, Edith Cowan University and Curtin University, are yet to finalise their research. As a result, the draft reports have not been provided.

(2) No. The research is the intellectual property of Wanslea Family Services and its research partners.

(3) I announced today that the department's review of the grandcarer support program has been finalised, and I table the attached documents.
