Productivity Commission reveals WA as poor performer

Greens spokesperson for children Hon Alison Xamon has called for more investment in support for vulnerable children as the Productivity Commission’s latest Report on Government Services (ROGS) reveals the concerning performance by WA across a range of important measures.

The Community Services and Housing and Homelessness sections of the report, released today, compare 2018-19 government youth justice, disability, child protection and homelessness data from across each Australian state and territory.


2705. Hon Alison Xamon to the minister representing the Minister for Corrective Services:

I refer to the new mental health unit to be established as part of the expansion of the Casuarina Prison, and I ask:

(a)  when is it anticipated the unit will be operational;

(b)  has staffing been planned for when the unit is operational; and

(c)  if yes to (b), will the Minister please advise the planned staffing numbers and positions?
