Royal Adelaide Show, Biosecurity

The Hon. N.J. CENTOFANTI (Leader of the Opposition) (15:28): Supplementary: whilst the minister was at the Show yesterday, as she said in her answer, did she ask to see and indeed walk through those sanitation mats, and was she satisfied with the biosecurity measures taken?

The Hon. C.M. SCRIVEN (Minister for Primary Industries and Regional Development, Minister for Forest Industries) (15:28): I walked through the entrance, as I would imagine most people do. One of the other things that was really quite interesting was when I was in the livestock areas—to see some of the additional facilities for handwashing, because of course hand sanitation is also a very important part of biosecurity measures. I will be back at the Show again I think tonight, as well as some other time during this week, continuing to have conversations with those who have concerns about foot-and-mouth disease and, again, continuing to work with industry and community and other jurisdictions.
