Mr WALSH (Murray Plains) (11:50:38) – (13 291) My constituency question is to the Attorney-General on behalf of the Campaspe Shire Council. On 29 April 2016 the Attorney-General announced $1.1 million to improve community safety and deliver on key recommendations from the Royal Commission into Family Violence concerning the Echuca courthouse: separate court access safe waiting rooms and safe interview rooms new court security officers to provide roving patrols and escort services for vulnerable people and a new walk-through metal detector.
Recently the shire has had to serve a notice on the court system because they are concerned that there has not been a satisfactory proposal put forward by the court system to have this proposal implemented. On behalf of the community of Echuca and the Campaspe Shire Council I ask the Attorney-General to expedite this project so there is safety at the courthouse.
