Legislative Council: Wednesday, June 01, 2022



The Hon. S.G. WADE (15:02): Supplementary question: I thank the minister for his answer. When the minister says the government is going to look further at this, could the minister indicate whether he is anticipating a structured public consultation on the sequencing and the process, or whether he is envisaging a government, shall we say, private consultation?

The Hon. K.J. MAHER (Attorney-General, Minister for Aboriginal Affairs, Minister for Industrial Relations and Public Sector) (15:02): I thank the honourable member for his question. Certainly, we will be taking a wide range of views into account. Again, it is a balance between making sure we are taking as many views as possible into account and getting on with the job of doing these things. It is not something we will be starting from scratch with, fortunately. There has been much dialogue and consultation, not just in South Australia but across Australia, about sequencing, and we will take all of those views into account, as well as the consultations we are having and will have.
