Inspector of Correctional Services—resourcing
(Question No 899)

Mrs Kikkert asked the Minister for Corrections, upon notice, on 23 September 2022:

In relation to funding for the Inspector of Corrections and further to the answer to question on notice No 327 of the Select Committee on Estimates 2022-2023 in which the Minister stated that the ACT Government continues to work closely with the Office of the ACT Inspector for Correctional Services (OICS) to ensure it is adequately resourced to provide their oversight responsibilities. Given the OICS seems to disagree with as evidenced by statements made in multiple hearings, such as how their oversight over the ACT youth justice facilities is limited. Did the Minister claim that they ensure the OICS is adequately resourced; if so, does the Minister disagree with OICS’s belief that they are under resourced.

Please refer to the response provided for Recommendation 79 of the Select Committee on Estimates 2022-23 Inquiry into the Appropriation Bill 2022-2023 and Appropriation (Office of the Legislative Assembly) Bill 2022-2023 final report.
