705. Hon ALISON XAMON to the minister representing the Minister for Corrective Services:
I refer to the now expired “2015–2018 Youth Justice Framework Western Australia”.
(1) Does the minister intend to develop a new overarching framework for youth justice?
(2) If yes to (1), when?
(3) If no to (1), why not?
Hon STEPHEN DAWSON replied:
I thank the honourable member for some notice of the question.
(2) The Department of Justice is currently undertaking a structural realignment and integration of services across the corrective services division, including youth justice services. Upon completion of the realignment, an overarching operational framework for youth justice services will be considered in accordance with the department’s strategic plan.
(3) Not applicable.
