Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2015 Week 02 Hansard (Tuesday, 17 February 2015) . . Page.. 405 ..


MR SMYTH: Minister, how many breaches of a similar kind occurred in ACT schools in 2014?

MS BURCH: I am not aware of any.

Schools—safety

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.

MADAM SPEAKER: A supplementary question, Ms Lawder.

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?
