Canberra Health Services—act of grace payments(Question No 461)

Mrs Jones asked the Minister for Mental Health, upon notice, on 17 September 2021:

(1) In relation to the $50,000 act of grace payment for “advocacy work at the Alexander Maconochie Centre” referred to in the Canberra Health Services 2019-20 Annual Report, what type of person or entity (individual, company, charity etc) provided the advocacy, and for whom did they advocate.

(2) Why was it necessary to provide the $50,000 as an act or grace payment rather than via a contractual arrangement or grant.

Ms Davidson: The answer to the member’s question is as follows:

(1) An individual who advocated for the provision of services and supports for detainees of the AMC.

(2) The $50,000 was provided as an act of grace payment due to the special and exceptional circumstances of the advocacy work.
