Michelle Lensink

Mr Allan Holmes

A question to the Minister for the Minister for Sustainability, Environment and Conservation, the Hon IK Hunter MLC, regarding Mr Allan Holmes

The Hon. J.M.A. LENSINK ( 15:20 :09 ): Can the minister confirm that, in December last year, Mr Holmes' contract was extended for three years?

The Hon. I.K. HUNTER (Minister for Sustainability, Environment and Conservation, Minister for Water and the River Murray, Minister for Aboriginal Affairs and Reconciliation) ( 15:20 :15 ): I cannot confirm that it was extended for three years in December but around about that time discussions took place (it might have been January; I cannot recall) to maintain Mr Holmes in the position and his contract was extended.

The Hon. J.M.A. LENSINK ( 15:20 :56 ): A further supplementary: can the minister confirm whether Mr Holmes' contract is being paid out or whether he has gone voluntarily and therefore does not require to be paid out?

The Hon. I.K. HUNTER (Minister for Sustainability, Environment and Conservation, Minister for Water and the River Murray, Minister for Aboriginal Affairs and Reconciliation) ( 15:21 :10 ): I, of course, would not have that discussion with Mr Holmes. He would do that through the appropriate channels, but I will find out the answer to that question for the honourable member.
