Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2021 Week 01 Hansard (Thursday, 3 December 2020) . . Page.. 228 ..


Alexander Maconochie Centre—emergency procedures(Question No 36)

Mrs Kikkert asked the Minister for Corrections, upon notice, on 4 December 2020:

(1) How many different coloured emergency codes are at Alexander Maconochie Centre (AMC).

(2) What criteria determines a code red situation.

(3) What protocols or procedures must be undertaken by AMC staff during a code red situation.

(4) What criteria determines every other colour coded situation.

(5) What protocols or procedures must be undertaken by AMC staff during each other colour coded situation.

Mr Gentleman: The answer to the member’s question is as follows:

I have been advised by the Justice and Community Safety Directorate that the information sought is not in an easily retrievable form, and that to collect relevant information to assemble responses would require a considerable diversion of resources.

In this instance, it is inappropriate to divert resources from other priority activities for the purposes of answering the Member’s questions. I do however offer the member a verbal briefing with relevant officials to discuss the questions asked.


Alexander Maconochie Centre—parental contact(Question No 37)

Mrs Kikkert asked the Minister for Corrections, upon notice, on 4 December 2020:

(1) How many inmates of the Alexander Maconochie Centre are mothers.

(2) What are the different mediums of contact a mother can have with their children.

(3) Are mothers afforded any additional contact/visiting hours with their children beyond that which is offered to childless inmates.
