Mobile Phone Detection Cameras

The Hon. C. BONAROS (15:00): Supplementary: is the minister aware of an inquiry being undertaken in Victoria off the back of inappropriate photos apparently taken by one of these machines that effectively showed the upskirt of a woman in a vehicle and the use of those photos in detection of mobile phones?

The Hon. K.J. MAHER (Minister for Aboriginal Affairs, Attorney-General, Minister for Industrial Relations and Public Sector) (15:00): I am not aware of an inquiry in Victoria or anywhere else into what the honourable member referred to, but similarly I will make sure that I forward to my colleague the police minister, whose department SAPOL is conducting these trials in SA, the honourable member's question so they can take it into account as part of this trial.
