House of Assembly: Wednesday, April 10, 2024


CBD Police Resources

Mr TELFER (Flinders) (14:42): An additional supplementary, Mr Speaker.

The SPEAKER: Member for Flinders, you do test the house's patience, but I will turn to you.

Mr TELFER: In addition to that, minister, if the resources that you refer to have not been shifted from elsewhere—they are from within existing resources—is this a case of the existing resources being asked to work longer hours to fill the additional obligation that has been put on them?

The SPEAKER: That does sound to me to be a little argumentative, but in any case, we turn to the minister.

The Hon. J.K. SZAKACS (Cheltenham—Minister for Police, Emergency Services and Correctional Services) (14:42): No.
