Criminal Law Consolidation (Children and Vulnerable Adults) Amendment Bill

I rise to speak on the Criminal Law Consolidation (Children and Vulnerable Adults) Amendment Bill 2018, and commend the Attorney-General for her swift action in bringing this very important bill to the house. It is a shame that Labor did not progress this further last year; it went through the lower house and the Liberal Party was happy to pass it through the upper house but it sat on the Notice Paper and was not progressed prior to the election.

Grandparents for Grandchildren SA

I am pleased to advise the house that today I met with the Chief Executive Officer of Grandparents for Grandchildren, Peter Biber, and was able to advise him on behalf of the Marshall Liberal government—I was able to advise him on behalf of the Marshall Liberal government that budget funding of $369,000 over three years has been approved

Child Protection

Ms SANDERSON (Adelaide) (14:57): My question is to the Minister for Education and Child Development. What actions have the government taken to ensure the safety of baby Evie when her sibling was removed due to safety concerns?

Suspended Child Protection Department Staff

Ms SANDERSON (Adelaide) (15:15): My question is again to the Minister for Education and Child Development. Will the minister inform the house how many Department for Child Protection staff (formerly Families SA staff) were suspended on full or part pay during both the 2015-16 and the 2016-17 financial years, and what the total cost was?
