SafeWork SA

The Hon. S.G. WADE (15:18): Supplementary: I thank the minister for his answers to my first two questions, but I would specifically ask how many additional inspectors have been employed by SafeWork SA since the commission was dismantled?

The Hon. K.J. MAHER (Minister for Aboriginal Affairs, Attorney-General, Minister for Industrial Relations and Public Sector) (15:18): I thank the honourable member for his question. I don't have an exact figure, but there is ongoing recruitment of SafeWork inspectors, with SafeWork SA to replace those who are lost through attrition.

The PRESIDENT: The Hon. Mr Wade, you have a further supplementary.
