Questions

Foster Carer and Kinship Carer Payments

Ms SANDERSON ( Adelaide ) ( 14:50 :17 ): My question is to the Minister for Education and Child Development. Can the minister explain—why she has restricted the extension of foster carer payments to those caring for people who are studying full-time or in apprenticeships, given that many young people in care are unable to work or study full-time due to mental health issues or simply cannot find any work?

Child Protection Department

Ms SANDERSON ( Adelaide ) ( 14:18 :09 ): My question is to the Minister for Child Protection Reform. Can the minister now identify how many of the 102 Families SA staff identified in the Hyde review are still employed by the agency, and how many are currently suspended on full pay?

Rigney-Wilson Review

Ms SANDERSON ( Adelaide ) ( 14:27 :40 ): My question is to the Minister for Education and Child Development. Can the minister confirm whether a review of the Rigney-Wilson murders case has been undertaken, who undertook the review and whether she has read this review?

Health and medical research

Ms SANDERSON (Adelaide) (15:47): On 2 October, I had the great pleasure of attending the Australian Society for Medical Research Leading Light awards, and I would like to congratulate Professor Deborah White, Director of Cancer Research and Principal Research Fellow of SAHMRI, for her winning research regarding leukaemia.
