The Government has agreed or agreed in principle to all of the 133 recommendations made by Mr Hamburger.
“Areas for highest priority focus include governance, records management, arrangements in the crisis support unit and food,” Mr Corbell said.
“In connection with the crisis support unit, actions are already underway to undertake a broad review of occupational health and safety concerns and other arrangements in that area specifically.
“In keeping with recent changes to the structuring of a single ACT Public Service, arrangements have already begun to ensure my directorate and the Health directorate work collaboratively together to ensure the best practicable outcomes for detainees’ health.
“The AMC Taskforce and the new Executive Director of Corrective Services have already begun to involve many external stakeholders as part the process of implementing the Government’s response to the reports. It is important to ensure that we include and consider the views of our many stakeholders whether they are staff, other Government agencies or community bodies.
