Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2002 Week 12 Hansard (14 November) . . Page.. 3650..


Later on, it reads:

THE CHAIR: ... You said it would be to house only low risk remandees.

Mr Quinlan: I did not.

Mr Speaker, if the minister was denying that only low-risk prisoners would go there, surely, given that there are no such things as medium-risk prisoners in this context, it would have to mean that some high-risk prisoners would go to the facility at Symonston.

MR QUINLAN (Treasurer, Minister for Business, Economic Development and Tourism, Minister for Sport, Racing and Gaming and Minister for Police, Emergency Services and Corrections): I seek leave to make a personal explanation under section 46.

Mr Humphries has a penchant for trying to verbal people, and he continues to do so. Mr Ryan said that there is a mathematical possibility that high-risk prisoners could be at Symonston if we had 70 or 80 of them. Now, all of a sudden, we have "low risk"means the opposite to "high risk"and is therefore "high risk". I still hold to what I have said: I believe that Mr Humphries has attempted to mislead the public about the way this annex will operate.
