Legislative Council: Tuesday, November 15, 2022


Premier's Comments

The Hon. H.M. GIROLAMO (15:23): I seek leave to make a brief explanation before asking a question of the Minister for Primary Industries and Regional Development regarding the Premier's comments.

Leave granted.

The Hon. H.M. GIROLAMO: During a press conference late last week, the Premier, when referring to the AFL Magic Round and South Australia's bid against New South Wales, said, 'I didn't want anyone else's sloppy seconds.' My question to the minister is: does she condone the comments made by the Premier?

The Hon. C.M. SCRIVEN (Minister for Primary Industries and Regional Development, Minister for Forest Industries) (15:24): The Premier has been in media discussing the expression, and I think he has responded to that fully.
