Parole Eligibility – Black Saturday

MELINA BATH (Eastern Victoria) (12:35): (31) My question is to the Minister for Corrections. Minister, this is a sensitive matter in my electorate and indeed all of Victoria, as the Black Saturday fires have scarred the lives of many, many people and trauma still exists within the communities that I and others represent. It has been revealed that the arsonist who was convicted of starting the fires in Gippsland is due to have their parole considered. What steps will the government take, including any new necessary amendments to the operations of the adult parole board, to ensure that someone who could pose a significant risk to my community will not be released on parole?
