Labor to end Serco prison contract

The McGowan government has announced the Wandoo minimum security prison will be returned to the public sector, despite an independent review this year finding private contractor Serco had met or exceeded expectations.

Labor said returning the privatised service to the public sector would save taxpayers’ dollars but did not provide any evidence to back up this assertion.

Its move comes seven months after the Office of the Inspector of Custodial Services Neil Morgan praised Serco’s performance at Wandoo.
