Legislative Council: Thursday, October 20, 2022



The Hon. R.A. SIMMS (14:44): Supplementary: can the minister confirm what arrangements are in place for those who are sleeping in tents who cannot be contacted by government agencies?

The Hon. C.M. SCRIVEN (Minister for Primary Industries and Regional Development, Minister for Forest Industries) (14:45): I would expect that the assertive outreach to which I referred is probably incorporating that into their work. We know there are vulnerable communities but also others who may not have ready contact, so that sort of assertive outreach is part of that. Again, if there is additional information I can provide once I have referred it to the minister in the other place I will do so.
