Alexander Maconochie Centre—bakery(Question No 301)

Mrs Kikkert asked the Minister for Corrections, upon notice, on 4 June 2021:

(1) How many (a) inmates (b) women and (c) men are employed at the Alexander Maconochie Centre (AMC) bakery.

(2) Are men allowed to work at the AMC bakery.

(3) How much are (a) female and (b) male inmates paid at the bakery.

(4) Is there a standard shift duration

(5) Are inmates of any security classification allowed to work at the AMC bakery; if not, which security classifications preclude someone from working at the AMC bakery.

(6) What other factors preclude someone from working at the AMC bakery.

(7) How many non-inmates are employed primarily to work, teach and assist inmates at the bakery.

(8) What baking related qualifications can employees of the bakery work toward achieving.

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 collection of relevant information to assemble responses would require a considerable diversion of resources. Further, I note that in some cases relevant advice has been provided through responses to previous questions from Members (for example, QON 100 from Questions on Notice Paper No 2 provides information regarding the cost of housing a detainee at the AMC), or may be available online (for example, information and advice to those visiting the AMC is available on the ACT Corrective Services website).

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


ACT Corrective Services—commissioner(Question No 302)

Mrs Kikkert asked the Minister for Corrections, upon notice, on 4 June 2021:
