Inquiry Details

Correctional Services Legislation Amendment Bill 2006

The Correctional Services Amendment Bill 2006 was referred to the Committee by the Legislative Council on Wednesday 7 June 2006 for inquiry and report. On the 15 January 2007, the Legislative Council prorogued until the 8 May 2007. Prorogation is the act of the Governor that brings to an end a session of Parliament and terminates all business before the Parliament, including parliamentary committees. As this prorogation has occurred prior to a general election, this means that the Inquiry has expired prior to reporting and no further committee work can be undertaken.

The objects of this Bill are: to prohibit inmates who are serving sentences for serious indictable offences or who are awaiting sentencing for such offences from providing their reproductive material for use, or storage, for reproductive purposes at hospitals and other places, and to require inmates who have had their reproductive material stored for reproductive purposes to pay charges for the storage during any period which they are imprisoned.
