Live Animal Export

The Hon. T.A. FRANKS (14:44): Supplementary: will you be the lead minister for the Malinauskas government on this issue?

The Hon. C.M. SCRIVEN (Minister for Primary Industries and Regional Development, Minister for Forest Industries) (14:44): We certainly work as a team on this side of the chamber. The issue, of course, impacts on the livestock industry and therefore regional development and primary industries, but it is also a matter of animal welfare. My colleague in the other place the Hon. Susan Close is the minister with responsibilities for animal welfare. I am sure, as we do on this side of the chamber, we will continue to work as a team, looking at all these issues as we move forward.
