Legislative Council: Thursday, July 07, 2022


Government Accountability

The Hon. J.M.A. LENSINK (15:05): I do indeed, arising from the original answer. Is it not correct that the Residential Tenancies Act is committed to him as Attorney-General?

The Hon. K.J. MAHER (Attorney-General, Minister for Aboriginal Affairs, Minister for Industrial Relations and Public Sector) (15:06): I will double-check that. I think I have 188 pieces of legislation that are committed to me. I suspect, but I will double-check, the Residential Tenancies Act is committed to the Minister for Consumer and Business Affairs. I am pretty sure, but I will double-check on that to see if it is one of my 188 or, as I actually suspect, it is committed to Minister Michaels. I am almost certain of that. If I am wrong, because there is an outside chance I could be wrong, I am happy to bring back a reply to the minister.
