Legislative Council: Tuesday, June 14, 2022



The Hon. D.G.E. HOOD (14:59): Supplementary: Attorney, is a $20 penalty in the instances I have outlined sufficient in your view?

The Hon. K.J. MAHER (Attorney-General, Minister for Aboriginal Affairs, Minister for Industrial Relations and Public Sector) (14:59): I thank the honourable member for his supplementary. I might have misheard the question, and I would want to have a look before I made comment about the entirety of sentencing remarks or a judgement, but I took the honourable member's comment to relate to something that happened in Canberra in terms of the penalty. That's obviously not a South Australian court, so I don't think it would be applicable, if I am understanding it correctly, to have a comment. I would want to see the whole context before sensibly commenting on it, but it doesn't sound like one that was from a South Australian jurisdiction, if I understood the question correctly.
