CHILD SEXUAL ABUSE BY TEACHERS
Mr O'DOHERTY: My question is addressed to the Minister for Education and Training. What is the most senior rank of person who has been charged, and does the Minister have full confidence in the administration of his department?
Mr AQUILINA: I have already indicated that I am not going to identify the persons or their place of work. I will not give any further detailed information in relation to this matter. The details were examined by the Wood royal commission. They were referred to Mr Slattery, who has made various recommendations in relation to those matters. Those matters are now being handled in the appropriate way. To provide any further detail at this stage would be to undermine those investigations and the places where these people work and the positions they hold.
