Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2015 Week 2 Hansard (17 February) . .
MADAM SPEAKER: A supplementary question, Mr Wall.
MR WALL: I will again ask the minister if people who are in trouble with the law are offered the opportunity to enter schools in the ACT in an attempt to impress the judiciary prior to sentence.
MS BURCH: In my ministerial portfolio, I think that is outside my remit, Mr Wall.
Mr Coe: Point of order, Madam Speaker.
MADAM SPEAKER: I think she has answered the question, so I am not quite sure what the point of order could be.
MRS JONES: My question is to the Attorney-General. Attorney, I refer to the situation where a convicted criminal without a working with vulnerable people check visited ACT schools through a program facilitated by a community organisation. The organisation self-reported to the ORS late last year. On what date was your office notified of the breach?
MR CORBELL: I would have to check the record, and I will take the question on notice.
MADAM SPEAKER: A supplementary question, Mrs Jones.
MRS JONES: Attorney, what steps have you taken to ensure that the Working with Vulnerable People (Background Checking) Act is correctly being reported and regulated across the ACT?
MR CORBELL: I am not the minister responsible for the administration of working with vulnerable people checks.
MADAM SPEAKER: A supplementary question, Mr Hanson.
MR HANSON: Attorney-General, are all breaches of working with vulnerable people background checking reported to you only or to you and other ministers?
MR CORBELL: I am not the minister responsible for the operation of the working with vulnerable people act.
MR HANSON: Who are breaches reported to?
MR CORBELL: My understanding, from my previous responsibilities, is that they are dealt with internally by the Office of Regulatory Services and by the senior executive responsible within that office.
