Question

Mr Mayor, in 2014, former Assembly Member Victoria Borwick produced a report called Hidden Hate and it was about disability hate crime.  One of the recommendations that she made there was that the police adopt the Pegasus reporting system and that all attacks against disabled people should all be investigated on the basis that they could be a hate crime against disabled people.  Is that something that you would be willing to take to the MPS for them to adopt?

Chair, I am caught blind on this.  Can I take it away and look into this?  It is always helpful to take up good ideas and so, if you would not mind, let me take it away and get back to you.

 

Andrew Boff AM:  Thank you very much.
