Legislative Council: Thursday, October 19, 2023


First Nations Voice to Parliament

The Hon. T.A. FRANKS (15:11): Supplementary: is the minister aware that Adelaide, Badcoe, Heysen, Unley, Dunstan, Bragg and West Torrens all voted yes in the referendum on Saturday?

The Hon. K.J. MAHER (Minister for Aboriginal Affairs, Attorney-General, Minister for Industrial Relations and Public Sector) (15:11): I thank the member for her question. I did listen with interest to the honourable member's contribution during private members' business yesterday. I haven't had a good look. I will at some stage have a look at the breakdown of votes. The one that has been brought to my attention is the mobile booths in the APY lands where I think 76 or 77 per cent voted in favour. There will be time for analysis. I will leave it at that. I am sure I will contribute more on this topic in the future.
