Quamby Youth Detention Centre

(Question No 616)

Mr Pratt asked the Attorney-General, upon notice, on 3 April 2003:

In relation to the Quamby Youth Detention Centre facilities improvement program:

(1) Given this project was scheduled for completion in June 2002 but there is still a $63,000 outstanding authorisation, what works are still to be completed and what works have already been completed?

(2) Will this project be completed by June 2003, will the spending be deferred again, or will it be reallocated elsewhere?

Ms Gallagher as Minister responsible for Youth Justice, the answer to Mr Pratt's question is:

(1) The initial allocation of funding was to develop a feasibility study for the upgrade of the Quamby Youth Detention Centre. The feasibility study was the initial process in the Quamby Forward Design program.


On 12 December 2002, the Facilities Improvement Section of the Department of Education, Youth and Family Services sought approval from Treasury requesting that the outstanding $63,000 be transferred into the funding for the Quamby Youth Detention Centre Forward Design Project. This request was approved.

(2) As outlined above, these funds have already been allocated to the Quamby Youth Detention Centre Forward Design Project that will be completed in July 2003.
