Riverland Businesses

The Hon. N.J. CENTOFANTI (Leader of the Opposition) (14:51): I seek leave to make a brief explanation before asking a question of the Minister for Primary Industries and Regional Development regarding Riverland regional businesses.

Leave granted.

The Hon. N.J. CENTOFANTI: Last week, the Premier was photographed in the Riverland promising 'an appropriate package to provide tourism support in the Riverland'. As the Minister for Regional Development, have you requested an update from the Premier on any action taken in relation to this public commitment in the Riverland last week, and when will this package be made publicly available?

The Hon. C.M. SCRIVEN (Minister for Primary Industries and Regional Development, Minister for Forest Industries) (14:52): Both myself and my office are in frequent contact with the Premier and the Premier's office, and I understand that an announcement will be made in the near future.
