ABORIGINAL AFFAIRS — CUSTODIAL NOTIFICATIONS SERVICE

185. Hon Alison Xamon to the Leader of the House representing the Attorney General:

I refer to the success of the New South Wales Custodial Notifications Service (CNS) in dramatically reducing Aboriginal deaths in custody in that State, and I ask:

(a) will the Government fund and implement a CNS to ensure Aboriginal people who are taken into custody have immediate access to appropriate legal assistance;

(b) if yes to (a), when; and

(c) if no to (a), why not?
