Youth Justice Bill passed by Queensland Parliament

The Youth Justice and Other Legislation Amendment Bill 2019 (the Bill) was passed by Queensland parliament. The Bill works toward removing legislative barriers contributing to young people unnecessarily remanded in custody, beyond normal processing. Previously in eNews we have noted the statistics showing that during 2017-18, 87% of Queensland children in detention were on remand, far above the national percentage of 60%. The length of remand periods was also at a national high of 63 days in Queensland. View the Bill or the Hansard for 22nd August for more on the parliamentary discussion on the Bill.
