1167. Hon ALISON XAMON to the Leader of the House representing the Attorney General:
I refer to the appointment of an additional coroner at 0.5 FTE for 2019–20 and to the backlog of 497 coronial cases at 30 June 2020, an increase of 39 cases compared with 2019.
(1) Given the still increasing backlog, will the government continue to fund the extra judicial resource?
(2) If no to (1), why not?
