Shop Theft

The Hon. D.G.E. HOOD (14:56): Supplementary: during those meetings with the commissioner, Attorney, has the specific subject of shop theft been raised and, if not, is it your intention to do so?

The Hon. K.J. MAHER (Minister for Aboriginal Affairs, Attorney-General, Minister for Industrial Relations and Public Sector) (14:56): I thank the honourable member for his question. I have had one meeting this year with the police commissioner. There are several regular meetings a number of times a year. I don't recall this being raised but certainly if it is one of those things that we need a joint response on as one of the highest priorities, it certainly may be.
