PRISONS — COUNSELLING AND MENTAL HEALTH STAFF

538. Hon ALISON XAMON to the minister representing the Minister for Corrective Services:

I refer to the 2019–20 state budget and to the coroner’s recent identification of a critical shortfall in the number of prison counselling and mental health staff.
