438. Hon Alison Xamon to the minister representing the Minister for Corrective Services:
I refer to recommendations made by the Coroner as a result of the inquest into the death of Jayden Stafford Bennell regarding the engagement of Aboriginal mental health workers to form part of the mental health team in prisons, and I ask:
(a) how many Aboriginal mental health workers are currently employed at correctional facilities; and
(b) if none, why not?
