Aboriginal Affairs Action Plan

The Hon. J.M.A. LENSINK (14:44): Further supplementary.

The Hon. K.J. Maher: From the original answer?

The Hon. J.M.A. LENSINK: From the original answer—


The Hon. J.M.A. LENSINK: —and quoting the use of the minister's words 'glossy brochure'. What advice has he received and what representations have been made that anybody has found the action plan offensive?

The Hon. K.J. MAHER (Attorney-General, Minister for Aboriginal Affairs, Minister for Industrial Relations and Public Sector) (14:44): I don't think I suggested that anyone found the action plan offensive. I did suggest, though, that we expect government departments to do those things they can reasonably do to advance the lot of Aboriginal people in this state.
