Aerial Culling

The Hon. H.M. GIROLAMO (15:13): Supplementary: I am more than happy to provide a copy of the incident report. So are you indicating that you are not aware there has been a second incident, or are there other multiple incidents that have occurred that you would like to disclose to this chamber?

The PRESIDENT: We never heard anything about multiple incidents—

The Hon. H.M. Girolamo interjecting:

The PRESIDENT: Order! The first part of the supplementary I think was in order. The second part perhaps wasn't because there was no mention of multiple incidents in your first question, but the first part I would invite you to provide an answer.

The Hon. C.M. SCRIVEN (Minister for Primary Industries and Regional Development, Minister for Forest Industries) (15:13): Whenever there are any serious incidents that are brought to the attention of the department, those are investigated. I then receive a briefing if it's something that is expected to be something that has some basis in fact. If the honourable member would like to provide more details about which specific incident she is referring to, I am happy, as I mentioned in my original answer, to seek additional information.
