Tarrkarri Centre for First Nations Cultures

The Hon. J.M.A. LENSINK (14:52): My question is to the Minister for Aboriginal Affairs about the budget. Why is his government prepared to blow $50 million over, from $135 million of taxpayers' money, on a waterslide in North Adelaide and, at the same time, has left the Tarrkarri—Centre for First Nations Cultures in limbo with a vacant lot and no commitment to funding in the forward estimates?

The Hon. K.J. MAHER (Minister for Aboriginal Affairs, Attorney-General, Minister for Industrial Relations and Public Sector) (14:52): I think it has been stated a number of times that there has been no cut in the funding for Tarrkarri.
