Mr PEDERICK (Hammond) (15:10): My question is to the Minister for Regional Roads, Local Government and Veterans Affairs. Following the recommendation of a select committee the minister chaired during the last parliamentary session for the appointment of a mining ombudsman, does the minister intend to use his influence as a cabinet minister to have this recommendation implemented?
The Hon. A. KOUTSANTONIS (West Torrens—Minister for Infrastructure and Transport, Minister for Energy and Mining) (15:11): We will be considering all the recommendations of that select committee in the previous report. I take select committees very, very seriously.
The SPEAKER: The member for Morphett.
The SPEAKER: Order! The member for Morphett has been called and will be heard.
The Hon. S.C. Mullighan interjecting:
