Female Genital Mutilation
The Hon. T.A. FRANKS(14:33:57): Supplementary: in that same debate in the other place, the Attorney-General actually considered looking at this issue of FGM being somehow discriminatory against intersex children and boy children in some sort of public inquiry, perhaps through YourSAy. Can the police minister please rule out that course of action?
The Hon. P. MALINAUSKAS(Minister for Police, Minister for Correctional Services, Minister for Emergency Services, Minister for Road Safety)(14:34:22): Again, the responsible minister for these areas is the Attorney-General. I am more than happy to make sure that the Attorney-General gets a response back in due course.
