Legislative Council: Wednesday, November 15, 2023



The Hon. C. BONAROS (15:08): Supplementary question: does the Attorney acknowledge that it is a small but significant gesture that would go a long way towards addressing the helplessness and feelings of horror that we are all confronted with in terms of what is happening in that conflict?

The Hon. K.J. MAHER (Minister for Aboriginal Affairs, Attorney-General, Minister for Industrial Relations and Public Sector) (15:09): As I have said, the illuminating of monuments is not a decision for me or the Attorney-General's Department. As I said, I think everyone shares the sentiment that this is completely unnecessary, and on all sides of the conflict would like to see the unnecessary loss of lives come to an end.
