BANKSIA HILL DETENTION CENTRE — MULTIDISCIPLINARY TEAM

1333. Hon Alison Xamon to the minister representing the Minister for Corrective Services:

I refer to media reporting regarding the creation of a multidisciplinary team to identify impairments in young people who are accommodated at Banksia Hill Detention Centre, and I ask:

(a)  when is it anticipated this team will be operational; and

(b)  would the Minister please advise the composition of the team, including:

(i)  job title; and

(ii)  FTE for each team member?

Hon Stephen Dawson replied:

The Department of Justice advises:

The proposed multidisciplinary team is part of the broader Banksia Hill Detention Centre (Banksia Hill) Project. A Banksia Hill Project Business Case is currently in development and will be considered by the Department of Justice in the first quarter of the 2018/19 financial year.
