      Reverend the Hon. Dr GORDON MOYES: I ask the Minister for Roads, representing the Minister for Police, a question without notice. Is the Minister aware of the concerns of Harris Park residents about crime in their suburb, the perceived inability of police to contain it, and moves for residents to patrol streets at night? Is the Minister aware of reported comments that police have advised residents to carry a fake wallet to give to robbers if accosted? Is the Minister aware that police have warned residents of serious legal consequences for those taking the law into their own hands? Will the Minister advise what specific measures have been employed to mitigate fears held by Harris Park residents about crime rates in their area?
      The Hon. ERIC ROOZENDAAL: I will pass the question on to the Minister for Police for a response.
