COURT INTERVENTION PROGRAMS

HON ALISON XAMON (North Metropolitan) [9.51 pm]: I want to make some comments about this government’s approach to diversionary courts. I asked some questions about this today. For those who are not quite clear what diversionary courts are, they are also known as court intervention programs. In particular, I want to make some comments about the court diversionary programs as they pertain to problem gambling. The Law Reform Commission of Western Australia produced a big report back in 2009, which I have actually used as a reference point for the last 10 years.

EQUAL OPPORTUNITY ACT — REVIEW
