Child Protection

The Hon. J.M.A. LENSINK (15:02): Supplementary question: will the Attorney-General consider legislation that would fall under the definition of restrictive practice in care settings?

The Hon. K.J. MAHER (Minister for Aboriginal Affairs, Attorney-General, Minister for Industrial Relations and Public Sector) (15:02): I thank the honourable member. There is a review of restrictive practices right across settings, whether they be care settings for children, health provision settings or aged-care settings. If suggestions are put forward, I am very happy to consider them if it is going to improve the safety of children.
