Domestic and Family Violence

The Hon. J.M.A. LENSINK (15:30): My question is to the Attorney-General regarding domestic and family violence reforms. Can the Attorney advise what his role is in relation to domestic and family violence reforms and what measures he has initiated since he has become the Attorney-General?

The Hon. K.J. MAHER (Attorney-General, Minister for Aboriginal Affairs, Minister for Industrial Relations and Public Sector) (15:30): I thank the honourable member for her question. Certainly in relation to family and domestic violence, it is an area that is shared across both myself and the minister in another place, the member for Reynell, the Hon. Katrine Hildyard. We and our officers have had a number of discussions and are looking at both policy and legislative reform we can implement in this area.
