Grape Prices

The Hon. F. PANGALLO (15:12): Supplementary: what provisions does the minister intend to set in place, or has set in place or planned for, under the South Australian Wine Grape Industry Act 1991, under the minister's portfolio, to ensure full and timely payment of grapes is made to CCW and its growers in the event Accolade Wines reneges on payment terms and the new company refuses to assume the debt?

The Hon. C.M. SCRIVEN (Minister for Primary Industries and Regional Development, Minister for Forest Industries) (15:12): I thank the honourable member for his supplementary question. The matter of enforcing legal contracts is something that of course will be either set out within the contract or within existing legislation.
