I refer to the Western Australian Law Reform Commission 2018–19 annual report.

(1)  Does the Attorney General support the proposal by the Law Reform Commission to receive a recurrent budget from which to remunerate members and conduct projects?

(2)  If no to (1), why not?

(3)  If yes to (1), when is it anticipated that the commission will be granted a recurrent budget?

POLICE — STRIP SEARCHES

1265. Hon ALISON XAMON to the minister representing the Minister for Police:

I refer to the current New South Wales inquiry into strip searches undertaken in the field, rather than searches conducted in police stations or watch houses.

(1)  What criteria are required to be satisfied in order for the Western Australia Police Force to lawfully undertake strip searches in the field?

(2)  How many field strip searches were conducted in 2018–19?
