The State Liberals have labelled the Weatherill Government’s lack of progress on ending the practice of single-handed shifts for vulnerable children as disgraceful.
The Weatherill Government’s decision to suspend standing orders to debate its child protection legislation in State Parliament before Opposition members had a chance to read the bill is a display of pathetic political point scoring.
The State Liberals are calling on the Weatherill Government to end its practice of recruiting unqualified staff to work in the child protection system and adopt the Liberal policy of opening up recruitment to people holding a broader range of degree-level qualifications.
In the wake of the Weatherill Government’s announcement of new psychological testing for child
protection workers the State Liberals are calling for the release of the Hyde Review and the review into the how a child protection worker red flagged by Mal Hyde returned to work before being charged with subsequent child abuse offences.
