Corrective Services Minister Joe Francis needs to come clean on plans to privatise the Banksia Hill Detention Centre. A Cabinet in Confidence document released by Radio 6PR today shows the Barnett Government has widespread plans to privatise services in the Corrective Services portfolio. The list raises the question of WA's only juvenile detention centre being privatised and doesn’t rule out the facility being sold to the private sector in the future.

The latest damage on cells at Hakea Prison reinforces the need for all building works and operational matters to be complete before juveniles return to the Banksia Hill Detention Centre according to the Community and Public Sector Union/Civil Association.

The spotlight is on 12 juvenile detainees who have been responsible for extensively damaging 10 cells on August 29.
