The Hon. T.A. FRANKS (15:11): Supplementary: will the inquiry that the South Australian government is part of be informed by the National Gallery of Australia's findings?

The Hon. K.J. MAHER (Minister for Aboriginal Affairs, Attorney-General, Minister for Industrial Relations and Public Sector) (15:11): I thank the honourable member for her question. I am not aware of that answer. I suspect the South Australian inquiry will take into account what they said. I can't imagine that an inquiry that the South Australian, Northern Territory and federal governments initiate will be established, have interviews or evidence taken and be concluded before then, so there is no reason that it wouldn't be able to take into account what the National Gallery of Australia's inquiry may have a look at.
