SafeWork SA

The Hon. C. BONAROS (14:26): Further supplementary: Attorney, given the ICAC report that was handed down in 2018 in relation to a number of botched investigations by SafeWork SA, is the minister confident with the investigation undertaken by SafeWork SA leading to the point of whether or not there should be a prosecution?

The Hon. K.J. MAHER (Attorney-General, Minister for Aboriginal Affairs, Minister for Industrial Relations and Public Sector) (14:27): I thank the honourable member for her question. Certainly in the case of the Woodford investigation the advice I have is, as I have said, my memory is—but I will double-check if it's wrong—something like a dozen officers that conducted many, many interviews, pored over many, many documents. I'm not aware of any deficiency in this case but if there is any identified I will inform the chamber.
