Parliamentary Questions

Question Without Notice No. 1054 asked in the Legislative Council on 1 December 2021 by Hon Nick Goiran

Parliament: 41 Session: 1

Answered on 1 December 2021

CHILD PROTECTION — REGISTERED CARERS

1054. Hon NICK GOIRAN to the parliamentary secretary representing the Minister for Child Protection:

I refer to the minister's answer to my question without notice 936 in which the minister informed the house that she regularly meets with the director general of the Department of Communities about the practice that he described to the Standing Committee on Estimates and Financial Operations as ''not something that we encourage''.

(1) Will the minister table the most recent documents received from the director general at, or in preparation for, one of these regular meetings about this practice?

(2) Will the minister table the most recent documents created by the minister's office about this practice?

Hon KYLE McGINN replied:

On behalf of the parliamentary secretary, I thank the member for some notice of the question. The following answer has been provided to me by the Minister for Child Protection.

(1)–(2) The minister meets with the director general of the Department of Communities regularly to discuss child protection matters. A standing agenda item in these meetings allows for verbal discussion between the minister and the director general to cover emerging or current issues. Agenda items are typically focused on significant issues and major projects.
