The Corrections Amendment Bill 2008 (Vic) was introduced to Parliament in July 2008.  According to s 1 of the Bill, it 'provides for the creation of prisoner compensation quarantine funds for the purpose of paying into those funds certain damages awarded to prisoners and to provide for the payments out of those funds of certain amounts recoverable by victims and others from prisoners.' On 11 August 2008, the Centre made a Submission to the Scrutiny of Acts and Regulations Committee regarding the Corrections Amendment Bill 2008.
