Cost of Living

The Hon. D.G.E. HOOD (16:54): My question is to the Leader of the Government, representing the Treasurer, on the topic of the cost of living. What is the average South Australian family currently paying per year for electricity and what was it paying when Labor last lost office in 2018?

The Hon. K.J. MAHER (Attorney-General, Minister for Aboriginal Affairs, Minister for Industrial Relations and Public Sector) (16:54): I thank the honourable member for his question, as he has identified for the Treasurer. It might be in conjunction with help from the minister for energy with that question, but I will refer to the ministers in another place and I will bring back a reply.
