Leader of the Opposition LIA FINOCCHIARO MLA Shadow Minister for Territory Families JOSHUA BURGOYNE MLA Shadow Minister for Health BILL YAN MLA MEDIA RELEASE Media contact: Kyrrie Blenkinsop 0437 916 899 Shadow Minister for Health, Bill Yan, says the CLPs introduction of amendments to the bail laws, last March, were a first step in important reform to put the focus on victims, not offenders. That was rejected by Labor, which brought in watered down amendments that have had little impact. In fact, wed say the youth crime situation is much worse. Its not good enough and Territorians deserve better from this Darwin-centric Gunner Labor Government. A CLP Government will stop the revolving door of bail by setting a presumption against bail for repeat adult and youth offenders, and reinstating breach of bail conditions as an offence for youths. This will have an immediate impact. Youth Justice should be returned to Corrections, so that that Territory Families can focus on its core function the care and protection of children. A CLP Government would scrap the minimum floor price and launch an immediate review of the Banned Drinker Register, said Mr Yan.
