Adelaide Crows Camp 2018

The Hon. T.A. FRANKS (14:57): Supplementary: noting that there are provisions under the act that require that investigations not be disclosed, is it appropriate that SafeWork SA is currently struggling against an FOI on documents related to their investigation that have been sought by the lawyer Greg Griffin?

The Hon. K.J. MAHER (Minister for Aboriginal Affairs, Attorney-General, Minister for Industrial Relations and Public Sector) (14:57): I thank the honourable member for the question. FOI matters for a department are generally the responsibility of that department. I am not sure of the exact circumstances of the case, but it might be the case that the interaction of the FOI system and section 271 may provide some difficulties.
