Cashless Debit Card

The Hon. N.J. CENTOFANTI (Leader of the Opposition) (14:51): Supplementary: thank you, minister, for that answer. Does the minister support a voluntary cashless debit card?

The Hon. K.J. MAHER (Minister for Aboriginal Affairs, Attorney-General, Minister for Industrial Relations and Public Sector) (14:51): I support federal Labor's position, and they are looking at nuances in certain communities depending on levels of support but, as a general principle, supporting that autonomy and self-determination that voluntary use of the debit card would allow.
