State seeking reduced figure for prison transport

State seeking reduced figure for prison transport

The state is seeking to get a reduced figure for the transportation of prisoners.

National Security, Stuart Young, told the Senate on Tuesday that discussions on the issue should be completed shortly.

Independent Senator, Paul Richards, wanted to know the amount spent annually on transport to and from Court in 2018 and 2019; and the amount saved on prisoner transport during the period April 1st to October 31, 2020, owing to the decreased movement of prisoners during the global pandemic period.

Minister Young then gave some insight into how the state plans to be guided in this issue.
