Human Trafficking

The Hon. N.J. CENTOFANTI (Leader of the Opposition) (14:39): Supplementary: does the minister concede that often sex work and trafficking are intrinsically linked?

The Hon. K.J. MAHER (Minister for Aboriginal Affairs, Attorney-General, Minister for Industrial Relations and Public Sector) (14:40): I thank the honourable member for her question. I am obviously not privy to the vast amounts of data and evidence that the honourable member has at her disposal in relation to what purposes people are trafficked across international borders for, but I know, certainly, from reading from time to time, it occurs in a whole range of areas for a whole range of industries.
