The Hon. H.M. GIROLAMO (14:48): Supplementary: in regard to the additional powers proposed by SAPOL, when will the Attorney be meeting with SAPOL, and will he be likely to provide these powers?

The PRESIDENT: You did mention it.

The Hon. K.J. Maher: The tenuous connection to those questions—

The PRESIDENT: Order! I will make the determination.

Members interjecting:

The PRESIDENT: Order! Excuse me! Order!

The Hon. K.J. MAHER (Minister for Aboriginal Affairs, Attorney-General, Minister for Industrial Relations and Public Sector) (14:49): I assume what the member is referring to is declared public precinct declarations. I have to say there are requirements under the Summary Offences Act, I think is the act that governs those, and any such requests are given due consideration.
