Alexander Maconochie Centre—detainee award rates(Question No 39)

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

(1) What is the award rate for inmates at the Alexander Maconochie Centre at (a) Level 1, (b) Level 2 and (c) Level 3.

(2) What determines which award rate an inmate is eligible for.

(3) Does any kind of tertiary education influence the award rate an inmate is eligible for.

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.
