Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2015 Week 2 Hansard (17 February) . .
MR SMYTH: Minister, how many breaches of a similar kind occurred in ACT schools in 2014?
MS BURCH: I am not aware of any.
MR SMYTH: My question is to the Attorney-General. It was reported in the Canberra Times last week that an organisation had been fined as a result of exposing ACT schoolchildren to a convicted criminal awaiting sentencing without a working with vulnerable people clearance. Attorney, it has been reported that you are in receipt of a report undertaken by the organisation in question. By close of business today, will you table this report?
MR CORBELL: I am not in receipt of any such report, nor am I the minister responsible for the working with vulnerable people checks.
MADAM SPEAKER: A supplementary question, Mr Smyth.
MR SMYTH: Minister, which arm of government decided who was culpable for the strict liability offences involved in a convicted criminal entering an ACT school without a working with vulnerable people clearance?
MR CORBELL: I am not the responsible portfolio minister.
MADAM SPEAKER: A supplementary question, Ms Lawder.
MS LAWDER: Attorney, who did decide the $2,500 quantum of the penalty and what are the justifications for the differing amounts of penalties?
MR CORBELL: I refer Ms Lawder to my previous answer.
MS LAWDER: Attorney, have all investigations regarding possible offences been concluded and dealt with?
MR CORBELL: Just to make it clear, I am not the minister responsible for the administration of working with vulnerable people checks. I cannot answer these questions.
Emergency services—infrastructure and personnel
MS PORTER: My question is to the Minister for Police and Emergency Services. Minister, what renewal is underway in both infrastructure and personnel in the emergency services across the territory?
