Enterprise Bargaining

The Hon. J.M.A. LENSINK (15:14): Further supplementary: how often does the minister receive briefings from that section within the department, on a weekly basis or something of that nature?

The Hon. K.J. MAHER (Attorney-General, Minister for Aboriginal Affairs, Minister for Industrial Relations and Public Sector) (15:14): The part of government that deals with enterprise negotiations is the Industrial Relations and Policy Branch. To the best of my memory, I think there are probably fortnightly briefings about various things. Of course, when there are intense periods of negotiation it would probably be more but, again, if that is wildly wrong I will bring back an answer for the honourable member.
