My question is to the Attorney-General. The UN has expressed concern about the very low age of criminal responsibility in Australia. In WA, we are currently locking kids up in an adult prison. Will you make public the final report, prepared in 2020 by the council of attorneys-general, which allegedly shows the majority of state and territory attorneys-general were in favour of raising the age of criminal responsibility to 14 years?
