Lead Pollution

In reply to the Hon. R.A. SIMMS (1 June 2022).

The Hon. C.M. SCRIVEN (Minister for Primary Industries and Regional Development, Minister for Forest Industries): The Minister for Energy and Mining has advised:

Further reductions to lead emissions from the Port Pirie smelter is an important priority for the government.

In relation to ‘will the government rehouse affected families while the lead abatement project is taking place’ I am advised that the Minister for Human Services will respond separately.
