Declared Public Precincts

The Hon. T.A. FRANKS (15:03): Supplementary: what reporting is done on the nature of the actions taken under the Summary Offences (Declared Public Precincts) Amendment Act, particularly with regard to CALD and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples who are moved on from the area?

The Hon. K.J. MAHER (Minister for Aboriginal Affairs, Attorney-General, Minister for Industrial Relations and Public Sector) (15:03): I thank the honourable member for her question. I will have a look, but I am not sure that there is reporting that is segregated by ethnicity or another way, but I am happy to inquire about that. I might just clarify, for the Hon. Heidi Girolamo's question, there has been application made to extend the current declaration, which I have approved.

It hasn't been gazetted yet. I am still waiting on further information from SAPOL about whether that is extended. So although that has been approved, it hasn't been gazetted, but once the further information about the further application has been made, it may be that that declaration is extended with other things included, but I am still waiting on that information—to clarify from the previous question.
