Ambulance Ramping

The Hon. N.J. CENTOFANTI (Leader of the Opposition) (14:53): I seek leave to make a brief explanation before asking a question of the Leader of the Government regarding safety in South Australia.

Leave granted.

The Hon. N.J. CENTOFANTI: During the election campaign, the advertisement authorised by the ALP said, 'Vote Labor like your life depends on it,' and yet, now the election is over, ramping has never been worse and the sense of urgency has seemingly evaporated. My question to the Leader of the Government is: is it still the government's top priority to fix ramping?

The Hon. K.J. MAHER (Minister for Aboriginal Affairs, Attorney-General, Minister for Industrial Relations and Public Sector) (14:54): It is an extraordinarily important priority of the government.
