Night Court abandoned

What they promised

Funding for Sunday and night courts and expansion services


What they say now

Night Courts not proceeding after consultation with the judiciary


24 Sep 2014 - The Liberal Government has abandoned it promise to fund night courts..

The decision by the Barnett Government not to fund night courts will mean that police will be required to spend more time looking after offenders rather than tackling crime in the community. 

The failure to fund the commitment was outlined in the West Australian in an analysis of the Barnett Government election promises. 

The reality: Night court abandoned amid lack of demand and just $2.7m over 3 years for Sunday courts. 

Dr Drum: Night court is looking like a media stunt.  I would have thought you'd get feedback from the judiciary before promising it. p4   West Australian 9/6/14
