ABORIGINAL DEATHS IN CUSTODY

HON ALISON XAMON (North Metropolitan) [9.48 pm]: I rise because I feel that I cannot not speak about the reckoning that is currently occurring in the United States and the global impact that we are starting to see. The murder of George Floyd has sparked an outpouring of outrage about the treatment of black Americans by police. In our own country, we are seeing that Australians are starting to speak out in solidarity, and in response to the situation within our own country and communities.

CORONAVIRUS — PRISONS — VIDEOCONFERENCING

513. Hon ALISON XAMON to the minister representing the Minister for Corrective Services:

I refer to the use of videoconferencing in Western Australian prisons during the COVID-19 crisis.

(1)  Is videoconferencing currently available in Casuarina Prison for prisoners to contact family?

(2)  If yes to (1), how many prisoners are able to access the videoconferencing facilities each day?

(3)  If no to (1), why not?
