A question put forward to the Hon. R.P. WORTLEY (Minister for Industrial Relations, Minister for State/Local Government Relations) regarding disrepair in buildings in the Port Adelaide precint.
The Hon. J.M.A. LENSINK (14:30): Has the minister been down to Port Adelaide recently to have a look at the state of disrepair of certain buildings, especially Customs House?
The Hon. R.P. WORTLEY (Minister for Industrial Relations, Minister for State/Local Government Relations) (14:30): Thank you for your question. I have; I was down there only recently, and I noticed the disgraceful condition—absolutely disgraceful. I actually mentioned it to the mayor then that it is an unsightly building but, as I have outlined in my response, there are other options available before legislative change. However I am quite prepared, if they want to put a submission to me, to work with the councils.
