2703. Hon Alison Xamon to the minister representing the Minister for Corrective Services:
I refer to the establishment of Interfacility Working Procedures (IWP) between Bandyup Women’s Prison and Melaleuca Remand and Reintegration Facility, and I ask:
(a) have the IWP now been finalised;
(b) if no to (a):
(i) why not; and
(ii) when is it anticipated they will be finalised; and
(c) if yes to (a), will the Minister please table a copy?
Hon Stephen Dawson replied:
(a) Yes. There are five Inter-facility Working Procedures (IWP) between Bandyup Women’s Prison and Melaleuca Remand and Reintegration Facility (MRRF).
The IWP’s are:
IWP Prisoner Transfer (Pregnancy).
IWP Prisoner Transfer (Transfer General & Population Management). IWP Urgent and Emergency Dental Services.
IWP Prisoner Transfer (Acute Mental Health).
IWP Prisoner Transfer (Punishment).
(b) Not applicable.
(c) These IWP are operational documents that contain information on internal Departmental procedures. The Department is concerned that if this information is publically available it could potentially impact the good order and security of the prison.
