A supplementary question put forward to the Hon. P. HOLLOWAY regarding Mr S Mcdonald.

The Hon. J.M.A. LENSINK: I have a supplementary question to the answer arising from the original question.

Will the minister provide to the Legislative Council what the allegations were that led to police visiting the alleged criminal’s home?

The Hon. P. HOLLOWAY: I am not sure what the legal position is in relation to that, given that there was no action taken. I am not quite sure whether they are matters that would probably come out in court. I think there are some ethical issues about releasing—

The Hon. J.M.A. Lensink: Ethical or legal?

The Hon. P. HOLLOWAY: They might be, but I will seek advice on it. As I said, some information has already been given as to what offences this individual committed. If the advice says that I can release this information, then I will do so.
