Legislative Council: Thursday, June 16, 2022


Mabo Day

The Hon. T.A. FRANKS (14:33): Further supplementary: has the minister met with the Mirning people with regard to their current claims to land and sea?

The Hon. K.J. MAHER (Attorney-General, Minister for Aboriginal Affairs, Minister for Industrial Relations and Public Sector) (14:33): I am happy to take that on notice. I want to make sure I am properly answering in terms of what the current claims are. I know there are in the Federal Court proceedings on foot in relation to various native title land and sea claims in the Far West Coast region. Whatever the current one is, I will have a look and get back to the member if I have had any interactions on the specifics of the latest one.
