PASTORAL BOARD

The Hon. J.S.L. DAWKINS(15:18:28): A supplementary: will the minister indicate in the absence of Pastoral Board employees which personnel will actually inspect pastoral properties in relation to stocking rates and rent renewals?

The Hon. I.K. HUNTER(Minister for Sustainability, Environment and Conservation, Minister for Water and the River Murray, Minister for Aboriginal Affairs and Reconciliation)(15:18:44): These things are still to be determined in terms of discussions.

Members interjecting:

The Hon. I.K. HUNTER: Well, on one hand they come in here and criticise—members of the opposition chiefly—about us making decisions without consultation and now they want to criticise us because we want to consult on a better process.

The Hon. K.J. Maher: They can't make up their minds.

The Hon. I.K. HUNTER: The Hon. Mr Maher is quite right: they can't make up their minds. They probably have no idea about these issues. I am more than happy to work with the Hon. Mr Brokenshire and the member for Stuart in the other place if these people opposite have no clue.
