sticking around

Mr R.F. JOHNSON: […] Custodial officers have taken over the watch-house in Perth and they are doing a great job. Indeed, we intend to enlarge on that sort of area, because we do not want police officers behind desks, looking after people in cells, transporting evidence from one place to another, or transporting prisoners from one place to another. We want them out there fighting crime. That is what they are trained to do, and that is what they are sworn to do. They are better off doing that.

Ms M.M. Quirk: Will you have the Department of Corrective Services personnel transporting prisoners?

Mr R.F. JOHNSON: The member will find out, in the fullness of time, the wonderful plans of this government.

Ms M.M. Quirk: I don’t think I’ll live that long.

Mr R.F. JOHNSON: I hope the member leads a very long and fruitful life.

Mr T.G. Stephens: You’d need to if you want to see the Liberal Party deliver on its promises.
