The Hon. N.J. CENTOFANTI (Leader of the Opposition) (14:54): Supplementary: has the minister herself met with concerned apiarists to speak to them about the processes followed by PIRSA personnel and management and, if not, why not?

The Hon. C.M. SCRIVEN (Minister for Primary Industries and Regional Development, Minister for Forest Industries) (14:54): PIRSA is best placed to be able to identify in detail each of their processes. I know that the—I can't quite recall the title—incident controller or the incident investigator has met with concerned apiarists, has gone through the information that I have just outlined in this place, and that is the appropriate method for that to occur.
