The state government is standing firm against pressure to launch a Commission of Inquiry - the Tasmanian equivalent of a royal commission - into allegations of institutional child sexual abuse.
The Greens and Labor have called for a Commission iIquiry after it was revealed three staff were stood down at Ashley Youth Detention Centre.
Separate investigations into historical allegations at Ashley, government schools and the Launceston General Hospital, are underway.

Justice and Corrections Minister Elise Archer said it was important any investigations carried out were case specific.
She also said the government was addressing the 409 recommendations made in the Royal Commission's final report on Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse in 2017.
"We are not leaving any stone un-turned," she said.
"The work that we have carried out in response to the Royal Commission already is significant, it's ongoing and in a couple of weeks I'll be releasing a Bill for public comment in relation to the child safe framework.
"We are not able to provide [survivors] with an apology and compensation, but indeed if investigations have not yet occurred their cases are being investigated.
"In the case where there may still be ... alleged perpetrators currently employed then they are being stood down whilst matters are being investigated."
