The Hon. C.M. SCRIVEN (Minister for Primary Industries and Regional Development, Minister for Forest Industries): The Minister for Women and the Prevention of Domestic and Family Violence has advised:

The government listened carefully to calls for a royal commission. The Premier and I held a round table, attended by ministers, senior public servants, and South Australia Police, along with representatives of the domestic and family violence sectors and advocates.

Following careful consideration, the South Australian government has committed to establishing a royal commission into domestic, family and sexual violence to drive effective and lasting change.
