We're Equal Campaign

The Hon. R.A. SIMMS (14:42): Supplementary: is it the case that such schools would be beyond the scope of any program given they are exempt from the requirements of the Equal Opportunity Act under section 50(1)?

The Hon. K.J. MAHER (Minister for Aboriginal Affairs, Attorney-General, Minister for Industrial Relations and Public Sector) (14:42): I'm happy to take that on notice. I know there are certain exemptions, particularly in terms of employment practices, but I'm happy to take that on notice to see how any exemptions would interact with a campaign like this.
