The Hon. C. BONAROS (14:50): Supplementary question: is the minister willing to meet with the Woodford family and their legal representation and hear them out in terms of their reason for wanting a review into this decision?

The Hon. K.J. MAHER (Attorney-General, Minister for Aboriginal Affairs, Minister for Industrial Relations and Public Sector) (14:50): I absolutely am prepared to and more than happy to do that. I've known for quite a long time the Woodford family legal representative and have a great deal of respect for him. I think I was talking to him only a couple of weeks ago. I see that as part of my role, holding these portfolios, to make myself available and I certainly will.
