QUESTION: Minda Incorporated 14 Feb 2019

15 Feb 2019

The Hon. K.J. MAHER (Leader of the Opposition) (14:19): Supplementary arising from the answer: is the minister saying she had no information about specific clients who could be at risk?

The Hon. J.M.A. LENSINK (Minister for Human Services) (14:19): I have been sent information not providing the details of particular names of clients. That, obviously, is very, very important in terms of being able to investigate the matter. I think it is beginning to form a pattern of a very sad strategy in South Australia when Labor members of parliament raise issues of concern but do not provide details so that they can be investigated by the authorities. We have gone back to the member for Hurtle Vale—

Members interjecting:

The PRESIDENT: Order! Let the minister speak.

The Hon. R.P. Wortley: Six hundred disabled kids waiting for a swimming lesson; you close the Strathmont pool. So don't cry at us.

The PRESIDENT: The Hon. Mr Wortley, could you just leave the Strathmore pool alone for a moment.

The Hon. R.P. Wortley: Strathmont.

The PRESIDENT: Strathmont.

The Hon. J.M.A. LENSINK: We have gone back to the member for Hurtle Vale and asked her to urgently provide us with those details so that we can be satisfied that those matters are being raised and investigations concerned, and those have not been forthcoming. I think it is actually quite inappropriate for a member of parliament, who has a duty of care, to behave in that manner.

The PRESIDENT: The Leader of the Opposition, a further supplementary.
