SafeWork SA

The Hon. C. BONAROS (14:30): Further supplementary arising from the original answer: is the minister aware that in Peter Howard's case the family was notified just two days before the prosecution date lapsed?

The Hon. K.J. MAHER (Attorney-General, Minister for Aboriginal Affairs, Minister for Industrial Relations and Public Sector) (14:30): I will answer very quickly, sir. As I said in response to a supplementary by the Hon. Connie Bonaros previously, I don't have to hand the timing of when those who are left behind after a tragic accident that SafeWork SA investigates are told in exact number of days beforehand. However, I would expect SafeWork SA to conduct investigations as thoroughly as possible, which I know can take right up to close to that 12-month statutory time limit.
