Legislative Council: Wednesday, March 22, 2023


Royal Agricultural and Horticultural Society of South Australia

The Hon. N.J. CENTOFANTI (Leader of the Opposition) (15:03): Supplementary.

The Hon. J.E. Hanson: About sausage rolls?

The Hon. N.J. CENTOFANTI: Not quite.

The PRESIDENT: The honourable Leader of the Opposition, ignore interjections.

The Hon. N.J. CENTOFANTI: As Minister for Primary Industries, what is her state government doing to support the Royal Agricultural and Horticultural Society of South Australia?

The Hon. C.M. SCRIVEN (Minister for Primary Industries and Regional Development, Minister for Forest Industries) (15:03): I thank the honourable member for her question. I will take that on notice in terms of specifics, but certainly when we had our cabinet meeting at the Royal Showgrounds last year, and with the guests also of various members and the chair of the show, we were most appreciative to be able to have an outline of the many wonderful initiatives that they were doing.

When we were in opposition we also had the opportunity to do something similar, and at that time the Show Society was outlining what were then their plans in regard to the caravan facilities and a number of other initiatives, so it is something that I think is great to see and very important to our state, and I look forward again to having some similar opportunities in September.
