Local Government Elections

The Hon. H.M. GIROLAMO (14:19): A supplementary.

The PRESIDENT: I will listen to the supplementary question; it should be arising out of the original answer.

The Hon. H.M. GIROLAMO: Is the Attorney-General concerned with these allegations and, from a legal perspective, what will he be undertaking?

The PRESIDENT: That is not really out of the original answer. Attorney?

The Hon. K.J. MAHER (Minister for Aboriginal Affairs, Attorney-General, Minister for Industrial Relations and Public Sector) (14:19): I think everyone in this state, and all of us in this place, are concerned if there are questions of impropriety during democratic processes. I have every confidence that my colleague, the Minister for Local Government, to whom the Local Government Act is committed, will be looking at this matter in the appropriate manner.
