Domestic & Family Violence

Today in Question Time, Abigail asked which of the 49 Safe State recommendations will the Government be adopting. The response? <Crickets>.

Ms ABIGAIL BOYD (12:44): My question is directed to the Minister for Mental Health, Regional Youth and Women.

The Hon. BRONNIE TAYLOR (Minister for Mental Health, Regional Youth and Women) (12:45): I thank the member for her question and acknowledge the seriousness of her question, which relates to domestic violence in our State—an issue that is concerning and distressing to so many people.
