Sexual Assault

The Hon. L.A. CURRAN (15:15): Supplementary question: what is the government doing to ensure that all state government sponsored events are fulfilling their community obligations to ensure that these events are safe and inclusive for all people who attend, not only at the event but on their way home, and to get there as well?

The Hon. K.J. MAHER (Attorney-General, Minister for Aboriginal Affairs, Minister for Industrial Relations and Public Sector) (15:16): I thank the honourable member for her question. This goes well outside my portfolio area so I will see if there is further information I can add from across government. There will be areas to do with major events and to do with transport that I think will influence these but I do know, as I think a lot of members know, that during very major events there is increased public transport and occasionally there is free public transport offered and there is increased security, but as it ranges across government I will see if there is further information I can bring back for the honourable member.
