Plans to prevent child abusers from having children

Alex Harris made this Official Information Act request to Ministry of Social Development

Ministry of Social Development did not have the information requested.

From: Alex Harris

Dear Ministry of Social Development,

This week, Social Development minister Paula Bennett told Radio NZ
that the government was "considering a range of options to deal
with the issue of known child abusers or killers having further
children - including allowing the Court to direct someone convicted
of serious child abuse or neglect or murder not to have more
children" ("Govt: Abusers could have children taken away at birth",
NZ Herald, 6 Jun 2012). I would like to request the following
information under the Official Information Act 1982:

* all advice on this policy.

I am specifically seeking material held by MSD; parallel requests
have been lodged with the Minister of Social Development and the
Ministry of Justice.

I would prefer to receive an electronic response. Queries about
this request will be automatically forwarded to me by the
fyi.org.nz website.

Yours faithfully,

Alex Harris
