First Nations Voice To Parliament

The Hon. H.M. GIROLAMO (15:39): Supplementary: why has the minister gone quiet on promoting the State Voice via cost-free methods such as social media and media release?

The PRESIDENT: I don't understand how you can get that out of the original answer.

The Hon. H.M. Girolamo interjecting:

The PRESIDENT: Order! I didn't ask you to comment.

Members interjecting:


The Hon. K.J. MAHER (Minister for Aboriginal Affairs, Attorney-General, Minister for Industrial Relations and Public Sector) (15:39): I am not sure whether it pleases me or disappoints me that the honourable member doesn't follow anything I do on social media, because I have certainly been doing a lot of promotion of the Voice on social media, including putting up clips of questions from the Liberal Party over recent weeks about their questions in here that have disturbed many members of the Aboriginal community with what the members of the opposition have been saying.
