Premier Mark McGowan introduces changes to parole laws.
New laws enabling the Attorney General to issue a direction to suspend the Prisoners Review Board's statutory reporting functions in respect of prisoners serving terms for serial killings or mass murders will be introduced into State Parliament today. Attorneys General of successive governments have consistently made public declarations that certain prisoners will not be released during that Attorney's term of appointment. However, these public declarations have had no impact as the Prisoners Review Board is required under legislation to consider whether the prisoner should be released.
