"Department of Community Services Caseworkers"

Page: 26595

Ms LINDA BURNEY: Earlier in question time the member for Goulburn asked me a question about caseworkers in the Department of Community Services. I have been advised that there is a 140 per cent increase in the number of caseworkers in those communities to which the member for Goulburn referred. The number of caseworkers in Coonabarabran has increased from three to nine, a 200 per cent increase; Tamworth from 15 to 33, a 120 per cent increase; Katoomba from seven to 18, a 57 per cent increase; Raymond Terrace from six to 22, a 267 per cent increase; Sutherland from 18 to 30, a 67 per cent increase and Charlestown from 19 to 51, a 168 per cent increase. On my reckoning that is a very good record of about 140 per cent all over.

Question time concluded at 3.25 p.m.  (Source : http://www.parliament.nsw.gov.au/prod/parlment/hansart.nsf/V3Key/LA20101021025?open&refNavID=HA8_1)
